Dirk Nowitzki will return to the Mavs next season for his 20th year.
Dirk Diggler was only at 26 minutes per game and played just over 50 games this season so he’s ready for another year. Dirk is an all-time great but his days as a top fantasy asset are long gone as he averaged 14 PTs per game, his lowest since his rookie season. Look for him to produce similar stats in his 20th year before he rides off into the sunset with Harrison Barnes, Seth Curry, Wesley Matthews and Nerlens Noel forming the young Mavs core as they gear up for their next playoff streak. Dirk did mention he may play a couple more seasons after next season but he is likely year to year at this point in his career.
