While he had said in the recent past that he will opt-out from the final year of his three-year deal with Dallas, Dirk Nowitzki may not indulge his team after all.
Nowitzki joined the “Ben & Skin” show on KRLD-FM 105.3 The Fan and said he hasn’t completely made up his mind on opting out.
“Just trying to find out what the best [thing to do] is,” he said. “Is it best to stay in the contract and play next year and keep the same pay, or should I opt out? Is that best for the franchise? Just trying to find out from Donnie and Mark what’s out there, what the plan is. So, 100 percent, my mind’s not made up, but I’m leaning toward opting out and trying to help, and see what’s out there.”
Nowitzki already has met with general manager Donnie Nelson and he’ll meet with owner Mark Cuban soon. He has until the final week of June to accept or decline his player option, but the point is that he will do that only in order to help his team’s flexibility in the salary cap in order to create a roster capable of a championship title.
