Maverick Notes: Dirk, Carlisle, Whiteside

Dirk Nowitzki hopes to be able to play one more season with the Mavericks before he retires, Eddie Sefko passes along via Twitter. “Hopefully stay injury free rest of this year, come back and finish 20 years and that’s probably it,” Nowitzki said. The big man signed a two-year, $50MM with Dallas before the season.

Here’s more from Dallas:

  • The Mavericks would like Rick Carlisle to continue to be their coach for the rest of his coaching career, but Kevin Sherrington of the Dallas Morning News wonders how long the coach can take a non-winning situation. Sherrington believes Carlisle will be with the franchise as long as he wants to be.
  • Hassan Whiteside said he would have considered the Mavericks as a free agent destination if the Heat weren’t such a strong option, as Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel relays. “[The Mavs] told me just how much they can help me on the offensive end and give me and the ball more and how much they could utilize what I can do,” Whiteside said. “Maybe if I liked the Heat a little less, you know, I definitely would have considered the Mavericks a lot more.”
  • Despite Andrew Bogut‘s latest ailment, the center still has decent trade value, Sefko argues in his latest mailbag. The scribe adds that the Mavericks are likely to wait to deal him until closer to the trade deadline unless an opposing team makes an offer they can’t refuse.

    No DeAndre Jordan. Didn’t get Hassan Whiteside. Next up? Nerlens Noel. Cuban can say he’s not giving up MAVS17, but his other choices are to “overpay” RFA’s Alex Len or Kelly Olynyk. Lol. Those two are obviously not like Jordan or Whiteside.

      As a Heat fan, I’d rather have Bogut than Whiteside. Only reason I don’t wish he signed with the Mavs is b/c at least he can be traded for an asset

        *Rather have Bogut than Whiteside, if I’m Dallas. They’ve been pretty good defensively this year. Issues on offensive end. They’ve also had injuries to Dirk and their guards, and gotten nothing out of Justin Anderson. Wesley Matthews was also terrible offensively earlier on, and taking way too many shots. He has played a lot better since moving to the 3, and Seth Curry has been starting at the 2. If they stay healthy, and Wesley Matthews continues to play more like he used to, as he has recently, they could start winning some more games, assuming they don’t trade off pieces
