Dwain Price

Chandler Parsonson Dirk taking a huge pay cut to get him: "That just shows what kind of guy he is. Dirk is a true professional.''

Dwain Price

In essence, if Mo Williams gives the #Mavs a Dirk-like discount, he could be on their roster as we speak.

Chris Sheridan

Columnist @Chris Bernucca takes a break from salaries with this piece on underappreciation of @Dirk Nowitzki Dirk Nowitzki sheridanhoops.com/2014/07/15/ber…

Dwain Price

Dirk will be the 4th-highest paid player on the #Mavs behind Tyson, Parsons and Ellis. What other superstar does that? #kobe #melo

Marc J. Spears

Sources: Mavs' Dirk Nowitzki takes pay cut to stay with his only team. yhoo.it/1n83jD5/s/LlId

Dwain Price

Dirk made $22.7 mill last yr. This year he'll make a little over $8 mill. Marion made $9.3 mill last yr. This year he'll make. . .

Jeff Caplan

Dirk takes even bigger pay cut than 1st thought as @Marc Stein reports deal is 3yrs-$25M. Initially believed was the Duncan deal 3-$30M.

Kurt Helin

Report: Nowitzki rejected max from Lakers, Rockets, to take three-years, $25 million in Dallas dlvr.it/6L5Bz4

Quixem Ramirez

Dirk is an awesome guy and a terrific player. But he belongs in the Barkley/Malone/KG tier and not the Duncan/Shaq/Kobe tier. That's all.

Quixem Ramirez

Dirk wins shooting by a landslide. Duncan wins literally every other big men skill.

Quixem Ramirez

Duncan's longevity AND his peak -- better than Dirk's peak -- puts him way ahead historically. And, I hate this argument, but ... Rings.

Dwain Price

Another reason stars should come play with Dirk. He's taking less money so you can get more money. And he doesn't mind if you're the star.

Marc Stein

Put Dirk's deal down as umpteenth example of the Rout of the Century that NBA owners foisted upon the union in last labor negotiations

Mark Followill

Dirk, he's the best there is, the best there was and the best there ever will be

Tommy Beer

Last season, Dirk was just the 3rd player in NBA history (Bird & Durant) to avg 21 ppg and shoot > 49% on FG’s, 39% on 3PT’s & 89% on FT’s.

Tommy Beer

Just incredible value for the Mavs. And make no mistake, Dirk is by no means washed… (1/2)

Dwain Price

#Mavs make it official and sign Dirk Nowitzki to a 3-year, $30 million contract.

Earl K. Sneed

I'm waiting for the Dirk "I never left" memes to surface...

Emiliano Carchia

Mavs officially Dirk Nowitzki to a three-year, $25 million contract sportando.com/en/usa/nba/127…

Emiliano Carchia

FACT RT @Arash Markazi: Nowitzki will be making $25 million over the next 3 seasons. Kobe will be making $25 million in the 2015-16 season.

Arash Markazi

Dirk Nowitzki will be making $25 million over the next three seasons. Kobe Bryant will be making $25 million in the 2015-16 season.

Arash Markazi

Wow! RT @Marc Stein Rockets AND Lakers called w/max offers for Nowitzki, but he rebuffed all outside interest to stay w/DAL.

Marc J. Spears

There is no option in Dirk Nowitzki's three-year, $25 million deal, a source said.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Dirk Nowitzki: 3 years, $25M. Kobe Bryant: 2 years, $48.5M. Curious to see whether Mavericks or Lakers get more value.

Tommy Beer

Kobe will make $25 million during the 2015-16 season… Dirk signed for just $25 million over the next the seasons combined

Jody Genessy

Love this. RT @Marc Stein: Rockets AND Lakers called w/max offers for Nowitzki, but he rebuffed all outside interest to stay w/DAL

Alex Kennedy

Dirk Nowitzki re-signs with Mavs for just 3 years and $25 mil. He had max offers from Rockets/Lakers. Crazy discount: basketballinsiders.com/2014-nba-free-…

Jay King

Essentially, Dirk is getting Avery Bradley money. RT @JADubin5: My word. Dirk will make less than Kendrick Perkins next season.

Marc Stein

Story going online now detailing how Rockets AND Lakers called w/max offers for Nowitzki, but he rebuffed all outside interest to stay w/DAL

Michael Dugat

Wow. Now, that's a discount. Hou offering the max and Dirk takes 3 years and $25m (per @Marc Stein). Of course, Melo save NYK $3.24

Marc Stein

Anticipated deal for Dirk was a structure like Tim Duncan's deal w/Spurs, but he took $5 mil less to help facilitate Chandler Parsons move

Earl K. Sneed

Per @MavsPR, the @Dallas Mavericks officially announce the re-signing of 12-time All-Star Dirk Nowitzki.

Simone Sandri

Dirk being Dirk RT @Marc Stein Nowitzki has taken bigger pay cut than previously thought. Deal finalized today at three years $25 mil

Jay King

Three years, $25 million for Dirk while Parsons gets three years for $46 million. The NBA can be a backwards place, man. And I like Parsons.

Michael Dugat

Mavs PR: Mavs have re-signed Dirk Nowitzki.

Andrew Perna

The Legend of Bargain Nowitzki grows.

Sean Highkin

The Mavericks have officially re-signed Dirk Nowitzki. Euro prospects are always risky but he has high upside. Good shooter for his size.

Marc Stein

ESPN sources say Dirk Nowitzki has taken bigger pay cut than previously thought. Deal finalized today at three years, $25 mil for Mavs lifer

Marc J. Spears

The Mavericks just announced the expected re-signing of Dirk Nowitzki.

Chris Sheridan

When #Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said Dirk Nowitzki was one of the 12 best players in #NBA history, he spoke the truth: sheridanhoops.com/2014/07/15/ber…

Kevin Pelton

Silver: 1. Dirk Nowitzki 2. Alex English 3. Vince Carter 4. Paul Pierce SCHOENE: 1. Dominique Wilkins 2. Carter 3. Pierce 4. Nowitzki

Steve Nash

I see Per Mertesacker's been to the Nowitzki school of dance.

Dwain Price

The #Mavs really want Dirk to be their 2nd-best player. Will Parsons be their best player this season? Or will it be Monta? Or Dirk?

Dwain Price

#Mavs like Ivan Johnson as a backup stretch 4 to Dirk. They've worked with him a lot on his 3-point shooting. They also want Ivan as a 5.

Simone Sandri

S&T a Washington per Blair. Possibile (anzi probabile)…Dallas ha lavorato bene, a partire dal rinnovo "Duncaniano" di Dirk… #askGazzetta

Chris Sheridan

More #NBA coming later today on @Chris Sheridan on Dante Exum, free agency winners and losers and perhaps even Dirk. Follow us

Nikos Varlas

Hey @Chicago Bulls fans, you know who Dirk @Dirk Nowitzki Nowitzki named as his heir? Yes, it's your @nikolamirotic12 eurohoops.net/2014/03/one-on…

Dwain Price

By getting Tyson and Parsons, getting hometown discounts from Dirk and Devin, and signing Jefferson to minimum, #Mavs having a good summer.

Dwain Price

#Mavs starting lineup: PF Dirk, SF Parsons, C Tyson, SG Monta, PG Felton. If Felton proves to be a weak link, start Devin Harris.
