Don Nelson called the Dallas Mavericks into a group after their morning shootaround like he had so many times. Then he told them he was done coaching, and handed his whistle to Avery Johnson.
The 64-year-old Nelson also had the title of general manager, but most of those duties were done by his son, Donnie, the team's president of basketball operations. The elder Nelson will stay with the team as a consultant.
"Nellie has earned the right to approach this any way he wants," team owner Mark Cuban said. "I just wanted to be supportive of any direction he wants to go."
