It did not take long for Boban Marjanovic to work his trademark charm on new Dallas Mavericks general manager Nico Harrison. 

Harrison spoke this week with Callie Caplan of the Dallas Morning Newsand told a funny story about the time that he spent this summer with Marjanovic while visiting Mavs star Luka Doncic in Slovenia.

The 48-year-old Harrison was just hired by the Mavericks in June to replace longtime GM Donnie Nelson. Fortunately for him, there is no better way to get acquainted with the team’s culture than by going on a scenic overseas roadtrip with the delightful Marjanovic.
