Dirk Nowitzki Wants To Stay With Mavericks

January 9 2013 at 8:48pm CDT By Zach Links

Late last week, Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki questioned some of the Mavericks’ roster building strategies and didn’t seem enthusiastic about their chances of landing a marquee talent after whiffing on both Deron Williams and Dwight Howard.  However, the big man told reporters tonight that he doesn’t have any desire to be traded.

I can’t really see myself anywhere else,” said Nowitzki, according to Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com (on Twitter).

Nowitzki has become accustomed to winning during his time in Dallas, but the Mavericks were swept in the first round of last year’s playoffs by the Thunder and currently find themselves with a 13-22 mark after tonight’s loss to the Jazz.  Regardless, the 34-year-old is under contract through 2013/14 and sounds committed to helping restore the Mavs to prominence.
