Dirk Nowitzki Intends to Return for 20th Season

Dirk Nowitzki to return for 20th season barring 'drastic change'

In his most definitive terms yet, Dallas Mavericks big man Dirk Nowitzki‎ said Friday that he intends to play next season at age 39.

Speaking to ESPN's Marc Stein on the TrueHoop Conversations podcast about whether his return for the 2017-18 can be considered a lock, Nowitzki said: "I think so ... unless something drastic changes here in the next few weeks or the last few weeks of the season, which I don't anticipate.

"I said last summer: I signed a two-year deal, [and] that obviously meant I want to play for two more," Nowitzki continued. "I want to complete that deal.‎"

That'd make him the second player in league history to play at least 20 seasons for a single team. As noted in that article, he also needs just 48 points to join the 30,000 club.
