Mavs announce deal with Nowitzki

Dallas, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - The Dallas Mavericks announced Tuesday they have re-signed franchise great Dirk Nowitzki.

The Mavericks didn't announce terms of the deal, which was reported two weeks ago.

ESPN.com said Tuesday that Nowitzki signed for three years and $25 million, rebuffing offers from other teams and taking a paycut to help Dallas sign Chandler Parsons.

Nowitzki, 36, has been an All-Star 12 times in 16 seasons with the Mavericks and led them to an NBA title in 2011.

He averaged 21.7 points in 80 games this past season -- a spike of more than four points over 2012-13.

Nowitzki and the Mavericks took the eventual NBA-champion San Antonio Spurs to seven games in the first round of the playoffs before being ousted in a blowout.

He has averaged 22.5 points and 8.1 rebounds in 1,188 career games for Dallas and ranks 10th on the NBA's all-time points list with 26,786. He was named NBA MVP in 2007.
