Barry Larkin : Mavs Don’t Do A Good Job Of Developing Players


Hall of Fame shortstop Barry Larkin said he’s ecstatic about his son Shane Larkin getting traded from the Mavericks to the New York Knicks. 

The elder Larkin ripped the Mark Cuban and the Mavericks organization for what he deemed an inability to develop talent. 

“Dallas doesn’t do a good job of developing players,’’ Barry Larkin told The Post in a phone interview from his home in Orlando. “They’re in win-now mode. [Coach] Rick Carlisle doesn’t know how to develop young players, and Shane was a rookie. It always was a struggle for him to figure out what was going on.’’

Shane Larkin was apart of the six player deal that sent Tyson Chandler back to Dallas.

“I’m off-the-charts excited because of the passion of New York fans,’’ Barry Larkin said. “I went through the roof.’’
