Dirk is Staying with the Mavs
Dirk Nowitzki is sticking with the Dallas Mavericks.
Nowitzki's adviser, Holger Geschwindner, told The Associated Press late Saturday night that Nowitzki and Mavs owner Mark Cuban have agreed "to get it done."
Teams and free agents can strike deals at any time, but can't sign them until Thursday.
According to a person familiar with negotiations, the deal is for more than $80 million over four years, with a no-trade clause.
The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because of the NBA's moratorium until Thursday.
