Mavs' Chandler Parsons unsure if he'll be ready for training camp
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Mavericks forward Chandler Parsons recently underwent knee surgery and he said he's not sure if he'll be recovered in time to participate in training camp, reports the Star-Telegram.

When asked if he had microfacture surgery on his knee, Parsons would not reveal the type of knee surgery he had.

"I don't think they want me to answer whether it was or wasn't," he said.

G Raymond Felton opts in with Mavericks for next season
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

What was reported is now official - Mavericks veteran guard Raymond Felton has opted in for next season, the Dallas News has reported.

Felton had the option of rejecting the final year of his contract that will pay him $4.54 million. But his market value suffered from a four-game suspension, ankle injury and limited playing time upon his return.

The 30 year old played 37 total minutes in five playoff games, sitting out two. He hit just 4-of-15 shots.

Mavs hoping to develop Dwight Powell into rotation player
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

The Mavericks are counting on forward Dwight Powell improving during the offseason in the hopes of him becoming a regular contributor to the team next season, reports the team's official website.

"He's positioned well with this organization," coach Rick Carlisle said. "He's a multi-position player that has skill, athleticism and a great work ethic, and he's going to have a great summer. He'll play with the Canadian national team, from what I understand, and he's going to continue to get better. There's going to be an opportunity for an increased role next year, and that's not an overstatement. That's how strongly we feel about his ability to contribute, so we really like him. You know, he's been a real positive guy to have in the organization since he came over."

Powell averaged 3.1 points and 1.7 rebounds in 29 games during the 2014-15 season and he said he's counting on being a more reliable player next season.

"I think I'm athletic and I can shoot the ball," he said. "I take pride in my defense, and I try to guard multiple positions and rebound the ball. For the most part, I just bring heart and bring effort. In the position I'm at right now, having been traded a couple of times and landing here, I'm really looking forward to the opportunity. But I also want to work as hard as I can to stay here and show my values, and show my worth and contribute to this team."

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.
