Since they know the exact dollar amounts they have to work with now, on Friday, the Mavericks are expected to finalize the three-year deal agreed to with Dirk Nowitzki last week. After his deal — presumed to be for $10 million a year — is done, the Mavericks will focus on Devin Harris, then Vince Carter. “Those are ongoing, and everything at this stage is kind of inter-related,” Nelson said of negotiations with those players. “We certainly don’t expect any hiccups or issues. Certainly, Dirk is first and foremost, and the other guys in our locker room are right behind him. Our focus is on getting those guys back.” Dallas Morning News

Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks have agreed to terms on a new three-year contract believed to be in the $30 million range, according to sources close to the situation. The deal, sources said, contains a player option that would allow Nowitzki to return to free agency in the summer of 2016 and preserves the rare no-trade clause he had in his last contract. ESPN.com

Sources told ESPN.com on Tuesday that the parties have mutually agreed to put off the finishing touches on their weeks-long negotiations until after the chance to make their recruiting pitch directly to Anthony, who ranks as Dallas' No. 1 free-agent target besides Nowitzki. The Mavericks and Nowitzki have been negotiating for some time, sources said, because the parties strongly contemplated hammering out a contract extension before June 30 -- such as the Memphis Grizzlies did with Zach Randolph -- to prevent the former NBA Finals MVP from even reaching the open market.
