Mavs, Nowitzki plan to finalize one-year deal soon

Mavericks All-Star forward Dirk Nowitzki may be playing in his final season.

Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks plan to finalize a one-year, $5 million deal soon, according to a report from Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports.

Nowitzki and the Mavericks are not in a rush to sign the contract.

In 77 games this past season, Nowitzki averaged 12.0 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.6 assists, shooting 45.6 percent from the field and 40.9 percent from 3-point range.

Next year will be Nowitzki’s 21st season with the Mavs, setting an NBA record for the years a player has been with a single team.

Nowitzki underwent ankle surgery in April.
