Coach Rick Carlisle hasn’t been able to figure out a solution to the Dallas Mavericks’ maddening inconsistency, so he resorted to making a rather drastic threat.

Carlisle vowed to get rid of players if the Mavs continue to have frequent lapses of energy and effort.

Carlisle repeated the threat for public consumption during his postgame news conference after calling Dallas’ performance in the first half “embarrassing.”

“Look, if it’s going to be like that, these guys aren’t going to be Mavericks very long,” Carlisle said after his team fell to fifth place in the Western Conference with a 15-13 record. “I can promise you that.”
