FILE - In this April 26, 2014 file photo, Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki (41) drives against San Antonio Spurs forward Tim Duncan during the first half of Game 3 of an NBA basketball first-round playoff series in Dallas. Nowitzki talks and acts like he's under contract with the Mavericks even when he's not. So while the signing of his fifth and possibly final deal with Dallas is a foregone conclusion early next month, the shape of things around the 36-year-old is the biggest question starting with the NBA draft Thursday night, June 26.
