Mavs GM Nelson Jets To Germany To Woo Nowitzki

A new report by the Associated Press indicates Mavs GM Donnie Nelson, aware that franchise forward Dirk Nowitzki will not accept a contract extension, has flown to Nowitzki’s native Germany in order to “how sincere the club is about keeping its all-time leading scorer and rebounder.” He has timed his flight to arrive precisely when the free-agency negotiating period starts—Thursday at 12:01 AM.
