Dirk Nowitzki Seeks 2-3 Year Contract Extension

by January 22, 2014

Mavericks superstar Dirk Nowitzki plans to re-sign with Dallas this summer as a free agent, and he’d like to stick around for at least a couple of more seasons. Per Sport1 (translated by Sportando):

“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.
