Rick Carlisle Likes Gerald Green

His high-flying act always attracts attention, which has not always been good because Green has been a tease too many times.

The Mavericks firmly believe this is no tease. Green has energized everybody with his youthful exuberance. He’s 22. He’s got a ton of athleticism and maybe more savvy than his first three years in the league.
So where does Green stand in the big scheme of things?

"Is he definitely going to be in the rotation against Houston? I don’t know," coach Rick Carlisle said. "Would I hesitate to use him? Absolutely not."
