Days after Rajon Rondo praised Rick Carlisle as “a champion” he respected, the Mavericks’ coach returned the sentiment.
“I’ve recommended Rondo to a couple of teams that have called me about him the last couple of years,” Carlisle said. “As a competitor, you’re not going to find a guy better or more resourceful. He really has adjusted his game constantly over the years. It didn’t work out here for various reasons. It was just not a good fit. I wished him well when he left.”
