Dirk Nowitzki and the Mavs plan to finalize a one-year, $5 million deal though there's no rush to get things done.
Nowitzki isn't going anywhere other than Dallas, so there's really no need for either side to force this one through. Perhaps the Mavs use the extra time and flexibility to make another move. With Luka Doncic and DeAndre Jordan now aboard, Dallas might be equipped for another run at the playoffs in what could be Dirk's final season. From a fantasy perspective, Nowitzki remained a steady value last season thanks to his surprising number of games played. He won't be an exciting option but will provide enough points, rebounds, threes and blocks to hold onto late-round value.
