If nothing else, Dirk Nowitzki has options should the NBA lockout continue. With the threat of a work-stoppage stretching into the 2011 season, many NBA stars are contemplating overseas offers, and Nowitzki appears to be no different. Already in demand in Europe, Nowitzki is now reportedly drawing interest from China, with a hefty dollar figure floated for his services.
According to a report on Tuesday morning, Nowitzki may have $1.5 million reasons to head to China during the NBA lockout.
Bayern Munich reportedly has had interest as would plenty of teams.
But could he turn down $1.5 million per month?
However, as noted earlier, the Chinese Basketball Association could block all NBA lockout rentals. Additionally, as Pro Basketball Talk notes, Nowitzki marches to the beat of his own drum, forgoing high-dollar sponsorships and lucrative endorsement deals, making an NBA lockout adventure in Germany, his native country, more realistic should the work-stoppage continue.
