There are rumors about the NBA lowering the draft age to 18 years old. What are your thoughts on that possibility? Nowitzki: Well, I think it’s been sort of weird the last few years: Some guys are going to Australia for one year; some guys are going to the G League. I think you might as well have them come in out of high school, if they’re ready… They don’t really want to go to college anyways. And then if they do, at the end they’re worried about getting hurt, then they don’t play in the tournament, as we’ve seen in the last couple of years. That’s just silliness to me, that’s just silliness. So you might as well open it up, if they’re ready. The scouts would know, the kid would know, the family would know and then we’ll go from there. But what’s been happening in the last few years, I don’t think is good for the game.

Franz Wagner: 'Dirk Nowitzki was a huge inspiration for me'

Who would you compare your game to? Franz Wagner: It’s tough. I think you always take stuff from a bunch of different guys. Some stuff works and comes easier to you in your game. I think Dirk Nowitzki was a huge inspiration for me. I don’t know if I’ve ever watched one player and tried only his moves. I think my game is not as easy to compare as others. When I was in Berlin, we watched Dejan Bodiroga. He played in Barcelona and used to do the Shammgod. He was a big guard. That was the first time I remember a coach showing me clips that could work for me.
