Dirk Nowitzki says he’s made the phone call to Dwight Howard to give his pitch and let the All-Star center know he’d love for him to join the Dallas Mavericks in free agency.
According to the Star-Telegram:
“I reached out to him and told him we’d love to have him,” Nowitzki said. “It’s not like we call each other every day.
“I didn’t write him a letter. We just had a little phone contact. That’s about it.”
With Howard patrolling the middle for the Mavs, Nowitzki knows he would have an excellent shot at winning another NBA championship before he retires.
“To me, when he’s healthy he’s the most dominant big man in the league,” Nowitzki said of Howard. “He’s shown that at the end of the season when he was right what he can still do.”
