Cuban and Mavs management introduce tracking devices during training, and Readiband sleep monitoring watches, among other health technology for the Mavs. Athletic performance director Jeremy Holsopple:
We are constantly beta-testing several technologies.
Cuban has invested in Australia-based Catapult Sports, which produces what it says is the first bio-analytics platform, a beeper-sized device that monitors and assesses real-time data on accelerations, decelerations, changes of direction and jumping to monitor training loads. The Mavs use the device along with about a third of NBA teams and half of the teams in the NFL, including the Cowboys. Cuban:
Anything that makes us smarter about our players’ health is a win for us
