Dirk Opts Out, Not Thought To be Going Anywhere

DallasNews.com reports that Dirk Nowitzki has officially chosen to opt out of his current contract, surrendering over $20 million in guaranteed money.

The official letter stating that Dirk Nowitzki is opting out of the final year of his contract has arrived in the Mavericks’ offices, an NBA source says.

ESPN's Chris Broussard says that no one in the league, including Nowitzki himself, expects the star forward to leave Dallas and that the added year of security is Dirk’s motivation.
