Dallas won't be opting into the $25 million option for next season.
The Mavericks are going to re-work Dirk Nowitzki's contract.
ESPN's Marc Stein is reporting today that Dallas has decided to not opt-in to the All-Star forward's $25 million option for the 2017-18 season.
The Mavs will instead re-work a deal that gives the team more flexibility moving forward.
How much of a discount Nowitzki will opt to take remains in question.
Nowitzki, 39, averaged 14.2 points and 6.5 rebounds a game last year.
The Mavericks are coming off a 33-49 season.
