Nowitzki Gets New Deal Plus Rangers Take on Angels Tonight


The Dallas Mavericks all-time franchise player and sixth leading scorer in NBA History, Dirk Nowitzki has signed a two-year contract worth $10 million to stay in the DFW. The Mavs turned down a team option that would’ve paid Dirk $25 million, and instead opens up cap space. The season coming up is the 20th of his career. Only Kobe Bryant has spent 20 seasons with the same team. The Mavs also send last year’s second round pick, A.J. Hammond, to the Miami Heat in exchange for veteran Forward Josh McRoberts.

The Texas Rangers begin a weekend series tonight with AL-West Rival, Anaheim. It is the final three-game set before the break. Texas currently resides in third place in the division at 41-44, only one game back of the Angels for the second. The Rangers will send Cole Hamels to the mound this evening sporting a 3-0 record with a 4.12 ERA. The Angels counter with Ricky Nolasco. First pitch tonight [on KPLT 1490am and 96.3fm] is 7:05 pm.

Rangers shortstop, Elvis Andrus, came up short in the American League’s Final Vote for the last All-Star spot. Andrus did, however, take a break from the team due to the birth of his first child. After missing the last two games, the Rangers only .300 hitter is set to return to the lineup tomorrow night.

Kansas City Royals 3rd baseman, Mike Moustakas, emerged as the high vote getter for the final spot on the American League All-Star game. On the National League side, 3rd baseman Justin Turner of the L-A Dodgers wins the final vote.
