Nowitzki, who turned 40 in June, has assured the Mavericks that he is prepared, if necessary, to play what is likely to be his final NBA season in a reserve role, according to the sources, who insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the talks publicly.

“He’s done a lot for me,” Gibbons reminisced. “He’s done a lot for this team.” The bench boss had watched, from a distance, as free-agent Bautista failed to get a contract nibble in the off-season.
