A potential free agent who many people have ignored when playing fantasy basketball is Dirk Nowitzki, but the fact is, he does have a player option that he may not choose to exercise come June 30 if he’s tired of the big-spending Dallas Mavericks having first round exits in the playoffs. Ira Winderman, of NBCSports.com, believes the Nets could be an interesting landing spot for Dirk:
What Nowitzki needs is a youthful, A-List teammate. As a free agent, he could find that in Chicago with Derrick Rose, possibly in New Jersey with a lottery pick, possibly in New York with another A-list free agent, or possibly even in Miami with Dwyane Wade.
I mean, what’s not to love about Dirk in Newark? But, I can’t see any way Mark Cuban lets Dirk leave under any circumstances.
