Dirk Nowitzki Says He’ll Likely Re-Sign With Mavs


Well you can take Dirk Nowitzki off the list possible free agent candidates this summer.

Nowitzki on Monday confirmed that he likely will re-sign with the Mavericks this summer according to Sports1.  This is the most definitive sign that Dirk has given in regards to returning to the only franchise he’s been apart of.

“In the summer I will be free agent and likely extend the contract for two or three years” said Nowitzki. “As long as the body supports me, it is still fun to play basketball. After the new contract I will be 38 or 39 and I will probably stop. For a few years it will work out all right” added the German forward who spoke about his friendship with Mark Cuban. “It is clear that our relationship is amicable. We had so many ups and downs together. The championship was the best part. Mark has always supported me. Even when things were not going well, he has always told me: ‘You are and will remain my franchise player” ended Nowitzki.

Sounds like a logical thing to do.  Now if Cuban get one more significant player to slide inside to compliment Calderon and Ellis in the backcourt, they might have something.
