Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Times are tough. Jobs are scarce, money's tight and our sports teams haven't lifted a championship trophy since 1999.

We temporarily interrupt this recession depression for some good news, wrapped in an employment opportunity.

The NBA's new Frisco Developmental League (D-League) franchise is holding a job fair this afternoon Noon-2 p.m. at Dr. Pepper StarCenter in Frisco. Dallas Mavericks' general manager Donnie Nelson will be on hand shaking hands and accepting resumes for positions with the franchise ranging from coaching to management to game-day operations to sales executives.

Applicants not able to attend may email resumes to dleaguefrisco@nba.com.

Says Donnie, "This team will represent Texas not only in name, but with our most important asset ... Texans themselves. We want this to be a team built by and for the people of this community. This next year will be beginning of a brand new sports franchise and we want everyone to be involved."

You have two hours to get crackin'.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
