DALLAS -- He may be a few years from retirement, but Dirk Nowitzki was asked Monday if he would ask Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban if he could purchase a piece of the Mavs once the talented forward retires.
"I haven't really thought about that, but he better give me a job in some capacity, I know that,'' Nowitzki said admist a lot of laughter from the media assembled at American Airlines Center. "I know that, after all these years.
"I’m not sure, but I’ll find my niche once it gets that far. But for now I still feel like I can play a
couple more years, so we’ll get into all that once it gets closer.''
Nowitzki, 35, has played his entire 15-year career with the Mavs and is the team's all-time leading scorer with 25,051 points.
