Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki to play for Germany in EuroBasket tournament
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Mavericks power forward Dirk Nowitzki will suit up for his native Germany during the EuroBasket tournament in September, according to the EuroBasket website.

Germany will host one of the tournament's group stage rounds in Berlin, which played a role in Nowitzki's role to participate in the tournament.

"I've chosen to be in Berlin," Nowitzki said. "I've had the whole month of May and used it to gain some distance and enjoy family time. Of course, I also have consulted the matter with my wife.

"But a EuroBasket in our home country is a huge thing and I look forward to it, I thought it would be a great way to conclude my national team career."

Nowitzki retired from national play after the 2011 EuroBasket tournament, but when Germany was awarded the task of hosting Group B in 2015 there was a distinct possibility he would return. 

"If [the EuroBasket tournament] was anywhere else, at the age of 37, it probably would have been a no-go for me," Nowitzki said. "But when I heard thatEuroBasket would be played in Berlin, a great basketball city, it was something I had dreamt about."

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, who has a reputation of being opposed to players competing in FIBA during the offseason, supports the decision of his franchise player to represent his country during the offseason.

"I think it's great," Cuban said. "Games are being played in Germany. It will be a chance for his fans there to see him play."

Nowitzki averaged 17.3 points and 5.9 rebounds per game for the Mavericks this past season.

Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki unsure if he'll play during summer
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki said he hasn't decided if he'll play for the German national team during the summer, reports the team's official website.

"I'll see how I'm feeling and what my family thinks. I don't make that decision by myself anymore," he said. "I've got others to think about now. The tournament is in Germany, which means obviously a lot to basketball in our country. That obviously weighs a lot into that decision. Plus, I would love to be a part of the Olympics one more time next year in Rio. But, saying all that, I think I'm going to talk to numerous people. I'm going to talk to [owner Mark Cuban] and maybe coach [Rick Carlisle], and see what's on their minds. The thing is, I've got to make this decision pretty quick, though, because it obviously impacts what I do this offseason. If I don't play, then I probably won't start working out with the ball until August. And if I do play, I've probably got to start already in July at the latest. I'd say I'll give myself a few weeks here. But, by June at the latest, I've got to know if it's a go or not."

Nowitzki recently completed his 17th season in the NBA and he said he was pleased with how he performed during the 2014-15 season.

"I mean, I made it through pretty good," Nowitzki said. "They gave me a couple of back-to-backs off, but I still played, what, mid-70s. Plus, the playoffs, so that's almost 80 games again. I feel pretty good. Like I said, I did a lot of work last summer and I'll probably do more of the same again this year with a lot of weight training to keep the legs strong. Not really sure quite what the summer will bring yet. We have an Olympic qualifier, the European championship, in Germany this summer in September. I haven't really made up my mind yet if I'm competing there or not, but for almost 37 now, I made it pretty good through another season."

Mavericks PF Dirk Nowitzki: I will play out my contract
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki will be 37 years old when the basketballs start bouncing again next season. But he has two years left on his deal with the team and he plans on playing them out.

"I definitely want to fulfill my contract," he told the Dallas Morning News. "I signed on for three years last summer and I'm not going to retire after the first year. If I commit to something, I commit to it fully. ... Hopefully [I will] make it count, make it good ones. Hopefully deep playoff runs; that's what we wanted this year."

Nowitzki remained consistent this season despite weaker numbers. He averaged 17.3 points and 5.9 rebounds per game - his lowest totals since his rookie year. But he only played 30 minutes a game.

Mavericks F Dirk Nowitzki willing to come off bench next year
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Veteran forward Dirk Nowitzki said he would be willing to come off the bench next season for the Mavericks if it meant the team was able to acquire a marquee free agent, per ESPNDallas.com.

Nowitzki finished the season averaging 17.3 points in 77 games, the second-lowest mark of his storied career and only behind his rookie mark of 8.2 points in 1998-99. Nowitzki had a couple of big games in Dallas' playoff series loss to Houston, but he will be 37 next season and the days of heavy minutes may be behind him. 

"Yeah, I mean, whatever it takes," he said. "My last two years I want to enjoy. I want to be a good team. I want to be on a winning team. Playoffs. Hopefully deep runs. So, yeah, anything I've got to do to help is obviously no question."

Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki not thinking about retirement
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

With Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki nearing the end of his 17th season in the NBA, he said his recent play has provided confidence he can continue to produce at a high level, reports The Dallas Morning News.

"You know, all the work I put in last summer, I felt amazing in November, so when I went through these droughts here, starting in December and then I couldn't really turn the corner again, there's doubt creeping in," Nowitzki said. "But in my head I was saying, 'I felt amazing in November, I played amazing, I felt amazing, I moved great, I shot great. Just hopefully eventually get over everything in my body and feel good again and then I still think you can play at a high level.'"

Nowitzki's efficiently has increased as the season comes to a close, which he said was perfect timing for the playoffs.

“To me, it obviously couldn't have happened at a better time," he said. "Usually I'm a big fan of springtime, it gets warmer out, the feel of it and the playoffs around the corner is usually my time so I'm glad it happened around the right time."
