Mavericks PF Dirk Nowitzki: I will play out my contract
"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.
