Here Mavs go again, pursuing big names in free agency

DALLAS (AP) Dirk Nowitzki is getting to know this drill pretty well: depleted Dallas roster, big names in free agency, no idea how the starting lineup will look in four months.

Here the Mavericks go again, trying to sign a cornerstone but now with time running short to build a championship contender around a 37-year-old star who's getting ready for his 18th season. Free agency opens at 11 p.m. Central time Tuesday.

"One little move, you sign one of the big guys, can change everything," the 7-foot German said. "Then all of a sudden people want to come here and play for a lot less money than they usually would. It should be an exciting time. But it's also always a strange time if you only have a few guys under contract and basically your future is a little unknown."
