Mark Cuban Thinks Dirk Nowitzki Will Help Mavs Attract Free Agents

by April 11, 2013

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban will enlist Dirk Nowitzki’s help in drawing coveted free agents this summer. Cuban is convinced that Nowitzki has persuasive powers. Per the Dallas Morning News: “Yeah, obviously,’ Cuban said. ‘He hasn’t been shy to make calls in the past. He just hasn’t been in the country. He’s happy to text and make calls. He just hasn’t been here. Dirk will do anything. He’s a team player from top to bottom.’ Nowitzki has always been amenable to chatting with a peer about the virtues of the Mavericks. But he’s never actually gone on a trip to help Cuban or the coaches or president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson with the sales pitch. So is Nowitzki a persuasive sort of guy? ‘He got somebody much hotter than him to marry him,’ Cuban quipped.”
