Nowitzki Wants To Finish Career With Mavericks
Dirk Nowitzki said on Monday that he never asked to be traded and wants to finish his career with the Dallas Mavericks.
“I never said I was going to be traded,’’ Nowitzki said. “What I’ve said numerous of times that you have two options. “We tried to sign [Deron Williams last summer], and we didn’t sign him, so we have two options.
“We either trade everybody and start over, or we bring in a bunch of one-year deals -- which we did -- and try to be a player next summer and, that’s what we went for.
“And we’re going through that now with eight new guys, and it’s a little ugly at times. But we’ve got to fight through it.’’
