Dirk Nowitzki open to playing beyond next season

Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki turned 40 years old earlier this summer, but he is not ready to call this season his last just yet.Addressing reporters Wednesday, Nowitzki said he would be approaching the 2018-19 campaign as if it was his last but added that he was open to playing one more season depending on his health, per ESPN’s Tim MacMahon.

Nowitzki, who re-signed with the Mavericks on a one-year deal this offseason, appeared in 77 games last season, averaging 12.0 points and 5.7 rebounds in 24.7 minutes per game.

Dallas rejuvenated their roster with the additions of DeAndre Jordan and Luka Doncic this summer which will help limit Nowitzki’s workload.
