The Athletic report stated that, although Voulgaris’ title is a formal quantitative research and development director, he has accumulated so much power and influence within the organization that he is actually the second in command in Cuban.
Before entering the Mavericks front office, Vogaris had become a famous sports gambler. The Athletic stated that Voulgaris’ annoying personality has caused discomfort in the front office of the Mavericks and made the relationship with Doncic strained. The incident in a game in February became a turning point.
This is not the first time there have been reports of false comments on Cuban: Earlier this year, there were rumors that the Mavericks were planning to leave Kristaps Porzingis this offseason. Cuban denied this.
Although Doncic is expected to sign a super-max contract with Dallas in the near future, all eyes are on the team to see if the Mavericks’ drama can be tamed.
