He was a free ageny coach with his contract up.

So happy to see this for the organization

There are a lot of coaching opportunities that might come up this summer

hes the 2nb best coach in the nba. 1st is pops of course.

but hes really taking a beating in dallas the way mark made him deal with a ****** roster and letting his guys go. surprised he stayed tbh.

Good coach, well deserved deal.

Good for him. Too bad Cuban gave him **** to work with to defend the title.

How awesome would it be if during timeouts in the huddle Carlisle talked to the team out of his butt Ace Ventura style??

Good for him. He's a solid coach. I'm not so sure as to the direction of this Mavs team, a lot depends on what they manage to land in free agency. For the Mavs, I would have stuck with a shorter extension, maybe two years... just to see where the team is sitting at that point, because in two years time it may be that neither the Mavs nor RC want to be hanging out with each other.

His contract wasup and I was a little scared he would jolt to NY with Tyson

But I know he loves Dallas, Donnie, Cuban, and Dirk
