ANALYSIS: Wojnarowski went on to say that the conversations are ongoing, but Jamahl Mosley, 42, has separated himself in the organization's process. It was reported that Mosley would not be returning to the Mavs bench after he was passed up on for the team's head coaching position in favor of Jason Kidd. This would be Mosley's first head coaching position.
