Warriors Rumors: Golden State Plans to Explore DeAndre Jordan in Free Agency

Dallas Mavericks decline Dirk Nowitzki's team option, plan to re-sign

Nowitzki, 40, is poised to set an National Basketball Association record for the longest career spent with only one team as he enters his 21st season with the Mavericks.

The Dallas Mavericks are widely expected to sign Jordan, who opted out of his $24.1 million contract for the 18-19 season.

Swingman Harrison Barnes and sharpshooter Wesley Matthews are also signed through next season, as are athletic big man Dwight Powell, veteran point guard J.J. Barea, wing Dorian Finney-Smith and big man Maxi Kleber.

However, in order to sweeten the deal for Jordan, someone else had to make a sacrifice.

Dirk Nowitzki is going to end his career as a Dallas Maverick.

England will play the South Americans on Tuesday after a loss to Belgium saw them finish runners-up in Group G. I thought they had the better controlled possession, and the better chances in the first half.

It was a mutual decision, with the Mavs planning to re-sign Nowitzki in July.

Nowitzki had surgery to clean up bone spurs in his left ankle in April, undergoing the operation then to maximize the time he would have to prepare for this season. Dallas needs maximum financial flexibility to pull all this off.

Per ESPN, the Mavericks have about $27.1 million in salary cap space after declining Nowitzki's option. It's important to note that Jordan would have made $24.1 million if he chose to exercise his player option in Los Angeles.

Last season with the Clippers, Jordan averaged 12.0 points and a career-high 15.2 rebounds as the Clips finished with a 42-40 record for the year.

According to ESPN's Marc Stein, the Golden State Warriors are still holding on to a slim hope that Jordan will take a massive pay cut to complete an All-Star starting 5 with Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.
