Dirk Nowitzki is one of the best players to ever step on the court for the Dallas Mavericks and in the NBA. His career may be nearing its end soon, but that doesn’t mean he can’t get paid over his final years in the league.
He has spent his entire 18-year career with the Mavericks and he will likely be getting to the 20-year mark with the team. On Tuesday, it was reported that Nowitzkie had agreed to a two-year, $40 million contract with the Mavericks.

The 13-time All-Star opted out of his $8.7 million player option earlier this year. After the Mavericks missed on signing several big names in free agency, they were able to give their man the pay he rightfully deserves.
Last year for Dallas, the 38-year-old Dirk Nowitzki 18.3 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.8 assists on 44.8 percent shooting and 36.8 percent from beyond the three-point line.
