Donnie Nelson on no bid by #Mavs 4 Boozer: "We got a power forward we kind of like in Dirk and you need cap space in order to make a bid.''

Tommy Beer

Dirk Nowitzki does not get the proper respect: sheridanhoops.com/2014/07/15/ber…

Tom Haberstroh

Kobe Bryant's salary next season: $23.5 million. Dirk Nowitzki's combined salary over next three seasons: $25 million.

Adi Joseph

I could see the Mavs falling anywhere from 30 to 50 wins. Parsons is overpaid, but Ellis and Dirk are underpaid. Felton is hedged by Harris.

Dirk, Monta, Tyson, Ledo and Lewis are all #Mavs players who didn't play college basketball.

Mark Followill

On roster/committed to Mavs as of now: Dirk, Tyson, Monta, Parsons, Felton, Devin, Jae C, Wright, R Jefferson, Lewis, G Smith, Ledo, Mekel

Dwain Price

#Mavs DEPTH CHART PF: Dirk, Lewis SF: Parsons, Jefferson C: Chandler, Wright, Smith SG: Ellis, Crowder, Ledo PG: Felton, Harris, Mekel

Dwain Price

#Mavs players Dirk, Tyson and Lewis all have championship rings. Lewis got his with Miami in 2013.

Ian Begley

Carmelo Anthony's no trade clause is rare. Only Dirk Nowitzki, Tim Duncan, Kobe Bryant & Kevin Garnett currently have one, per @Larry Coon.

Chris Sheridan

Who is better: Dirk Nowitzki or Carmelo Anthony? My answer in this podcast with Steve Somers on @WFAN660 in NY: sheridanhoops.com/2014/07/15/pod…

Dwain Price

"I love the core we have here. With Tyson and Monta and Dirk, I think we have a chance to do some special things here.'' -- Chandler Parsons

Dwain Price

Chandler Parsons on Dirk: "He's such a smart player. He's an unbelievable shooter. He's just a student of the game.''

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.

Ethan J. Skolnick

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

Marc J. Spears

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

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
