Rosas Resigns as Dallas Mavericks’ GM Three Months Into Job

Oct. 30 (Bloomberg) -- Gersson Rosas resigned as general manager of the Dallas Mavericks three months after he was hired by the National Basketball Association team.

Rosas, 35, ended his tenure yesterday on the eve of the team’s season opener.

“I made the personal decision to resign as general manager of the Dallas Mavericks after determining that the position was not the best fit for me at this point in my career,” Rosas said in a statement. “The decision was made solely by me, as I firmly believe this change is in my best interest.”

Owner Mark Cuban said he was “disappointed” with Rosas’s decision.

The Mavericks open their NBA season tonight hosting the Atlanta Hawks.
