Dirk Nowitzki could possibly have his jersey retired by the Mavs as soon as this season

SAN FRANCISCO – Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is contemplating retiring Dirk Nowitzki’s jersey as soon as this season – if possible.

“Dirk and I are discussing it,” Cuban told prior to Tuesday’s game between the Mavs and Golden State Warriors. “We’re trying to figure it out.”

The only Mavs’ players whose jersey have been retired are Brad Davis, Rolando Blackman and Derek Harper.

As far as retiring Nowitzki’s jersey, Cuban said: “The challenge is just getting it all done just because it’s not a lot of home games left. It’s only like (19) home games left, so that’s the hard part.
