Dallas Mavericks to Hire Gersson Rosas as New GM


Houston Rockets executive Gersson Rosas is moving on to the Dallas Mavericks, having reportedly agreed to become the Mavs’ new general manager. Per Yahoo! Sports: “For Mavs owner Mark Cuban and president Donnie Nelson, the hiring of Rosas is a coup for an organization that has been committed to finding a way to strengthen its basketball operations. Rosas will be given significant latitude to shape the direction of the franchise’s pro and college personnel departments, free agency and scouting. As an integral part of rebuilding the Rockets’ roster with Houston general manager Daryl Morey, Rosas, 35, is considered one of the NBA’s best young executives. Over nine years with the Rockets, Rosas advanced steadily through the organization, beginning as a video coordinator and scout, and rising to executive vice president of basketball operations. With Rosas as general manager of Houston’s D-League affiliate, the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, the team won two championships and reached a third league finals. Rosas is a native of Bogota, Columbia, and has a coaching history at the University of Houston and with the Venezuelan national team.”
