Nowitzki set for 20th season, Mavs needing more star power

DALLAS (AP) Dirk Nowitzki decided a while back that he would play a 20th season for the Dallas Mavericks.

The big German has a potential heir in Harrison Barnes, some intriguing young players with rotation potential around him and a good enough feeling about his body that the 38-year-old might even hang around beyond next season.

But the Mavericks are coming off their worst record (33-49) since 1997-98, the season before Nowitzki arrived. They've missed the playoffs twice in five seasons after qualifying 12 straight years. And they still haven't won a playoff series since winning the franchise's only championship in 2011.
