After 19 seasons, 13 All-Star appearances, an MVP, an NBA championship and a Finals MVP, Dirk Nowitzki has seemingly done it all in a Dallas Mavericks uniform. As he’s said for years now, one of Nowitzki’s last remaining goals is to retire as a Mav. That’s looking like a dream scenario as the Mavericks re-signed the veteran on Thursday.
ESPN’s Tim MacMahon reports that the deal is for two seasons.
Sources: The Mavs are in the process of finalizing a two-year, $10 million deal with Dirk Nowitzki. The second season will be a team option.

And in a twist of symmetry, if Nowitzki (who wears No. 41) plays this contract out he will also turn 41 heading into the final year of this deal.
