After his record-breaking 21st NBA season with the Dallas Mavericks, Dirk Nowitzki recently acquired former player status. However, the 40-year-old German has no intention of parting ways with the Texans: “It’s not a goodbye. I’ll be around”. Building on the above comment, reports that Mark Cuban is excited on the prospect of his long-time player being involved in the organization’s ownership.

“I’ll have that conversation with Dirk sometime in the near future. There are a lot of things involved to make it all work. But it would be awesome!” 60-year-old Cuban, owner of the Mavs, mentioned exclusively to on the subject. Nowitzki himself admitted during Thursday’s Exit Interviews Day that he’d be honored to take on an ownership role.
