Carlisle: Cunningham Similar to Westbrook
(Mavs coach Rick) Carlisle doesn’t like to compare players, but he came up with a doozy when analyzing (Jared) Cunningham, who is 6-4 and 195 pounds.
“Athletically, he’s similar to a (Russell) Westbrook,” he said. “That’s a lot to put on a kid, but you got to have guys with that kind of speed and quickness to compete with the perimeter players in this league. We’re excited about it.”
