Dirk Nowitzki Contract Option Declined by Mavericks, Will Sign New Dallas Deal

Dirk Nowitzki’s hefty $25 million contract option was declined by the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday, though he is expected to sign a new deal and return to the Mavs for his 20th NBA season in 2017-18, per Marc Stein of ESPN.
Stein reported the sides have “strongly considered” a two-year contract to keep the 39-year-old future Hall of Famer in Dallas.

In an interview with Stein on TrueHoop Conversations (h/t ESPN.com) in March, the German revealed his intention to play for the Mavs in 2017-18: “I said last summer: I signed a two-year deal, [and] that obviously meant I want to play for two more. I want to complete that deal.” More about the article here Bleacher Report
