On Sunday, Dirk Nowitzki answered a series of questions from fans on his Twitter page. During this Q&A session, he was asked how long he planned on playing, and responded that he planned to play out the final two years of his contract and then make a decision beyond that.
Nowitzki, 34, signed a four-year, $80MM contract with the Mavericks in 2010. He is scheduled to make $20.9MM in 2012/13 and $22.7MM in 2013/14. He averaged 21.6 PPG, 6.8 RPG, and 2.2 APG last season.
