Dirk Nowitzki joins the Mavericks as a consultant to help coach search
Dallas Mavericks legend Dirk Nowitzki will join the team’s front desk as a special adviser and help find a new head coach.
Despite the recent turmoil, the Mavericks have found someone who is happy to join the organization.
GM Donnie Nelson and head coach Rick Carlisleboth recently left the team.
According to Marc Stein of the New York Times, Nowitzki’s role will not appear in his daily capacity because he is currently delaying this opportunity.
Former Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki told @NYTSports He will rejoin the organization as a special adviser.
At the request of Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, Nowitzki’s first task was to assist the team in finding new basketball operations directors and coaches.

Nowitzki contacted owner Mark Cuban to advise the club and received an offer that he could not refuse.
Dirk and the Mavericks have a long history.
Nowitzki spent his entire 21-year career in Dallas, created 14 All-Star teams, 12 best NBA teams, and won the MVP in 2007 2011 NBA championship.
For the Mavericks, who lost the aforementioned general manager Nelson and coach Carlisle, it was a difficult week because of reports that superstar Luka Doncic could not get along with a member of the management.
Cuban rejected this idea, calling it “All Bulls***”.
Dirk Nowitzki should have greatly improved the public image of the Mavericks, but for someone who has served as the savior of the team, this may be a big request.
See how this helps Doncic situation And whether it will improve the future of their frustrated stars and franchise.
