A few weeks ago, Dallas Mavericks icon Dirk Nowitzki said that he planned to play another two or three seasons and hinted that he would likely re-sign with the Mavericks on a two-year deal at season end.
That’s not exactly new news, but the fact that Dirk said he could continually sign one year contracts after that is. And that’s exactly what the Mavericks star stated when asked about his future recently.
“I’m a free agent this summer, and I’ll probably sign on for two or three years,” Nowitzki said. “And then I can sign a bunch of one-year deals, I guess, after that, as long as I want and as long as it feels good.”
While Dirk went on to hint that he’ll obviously have some decline and won’t be the same player people remember him being, there isn’t a lot of wear and tear on the body just standing in the corner shooting three-point shots – something he believes he can do to extend his career.
Of course, there’s the whole idea of defense – but Dirk’s never been one to stress over that.
