Following a storied 21-year career with the Dallas Mavericks, Dirk Nowitzki retired after the 2018-19 season. Now, the Mavs icon is entering the next chapter of his career.
While Nowitzki remains undecided and is taking his time before making his next career move post-retirement, he seems to have a number of offers waiting for him. According to reports, one of which is working with German club Bayern Munich.
The club’s owner Uli Hoeness, in fact, is ready to offer Nowitzki a job if he “feels like working in Germany.”
Hoeness, however, is not rushing Nowitzki and said that it’s good for the German legend to take a break first.
While his family is in the US, it would make sense for the German-born Nowitzki to return to his native land and serve in some sort of advisory capacity with Bayern Munich.
Multiple NBA players have suited up for Bayern Munich over the years, including Maxi Kleber, Malcolm Delaney, Derrick Williams and Paul Zipser. Delaney, who played for the Atlanta Hawks for two seasons, won the Bundesliga’s Most Valuable Player award in 2014.
Bayern Munich have finished first in the Bundesliga for two consecutive seasons, even going so far as to win the German Cup in 2017-18. That squad also made it to the EuroCup Semifinals — the best-ever finish for the team in that competition.
Perhaps Dirk Nowitzki will join the team’s front office in order to further cement the team’s status in its league following its recent successes. Of course, we all expect the Mavs and Mark Cuban to offer him a job too.
