BIOGRAPHY
Scouting report
+ Face-up 7-footer with one of the most accurate and unblockable jump shots in the league.
+ Becoming more perimeter-oriented, but shoots, protects the ball so well.
+ Solid team defender provided he isn't matched with top one-on-one scorers.

Analysis
Nowitzki was limited to 53 games last season because of knee surgery and didn't start a game until Jan. 5. Nowitzki struggled upon returning and in 23 games leading up to the All-Star break, he averaged just 15.2 points on a .518 true shooting percentage. As he rounded into shape, a semblance of his old self returned, with his average jumping to 18.9 after the break and his true shooting percentage to .597.

Still, Nowitzki posted his lowest winning percentage since that non-playoff season and his WARP total was his lowest since his replacement-level rookie season. At 35, it's almost a given that Nowitzki is not going to bounce back to his MVP level of a few years ago. An All-Star level? That's a possibility given how much of his game is skill-based. His length and high-release point aren't going away, either, and he should remain a dangerous perimeter option as long as he chooses to keep playing.

But whether it was a residual from the knee trouble or an evolution in his game, Nowitzki was more perimeter-oriented than ever in 2012-13, and finished with a career-low foul-drawing rate. He did shoot over 41 percent from deep, and remained as effective as ever from the field inside the arc, so despite the decline in free throws, his true shooting percentage remained well over the league average and, as noted, was back to elite by season's end. We might have seen a glimpse of Nowitzki's future, where he values efficiency over volume and doesn't try to force the action. His usage rate was down five percent, but his turnover rate was one of the best in his career. That suggests a Nowitzki who is happy to share the load if he can't get open and maintains his standing as one of the best ball-protectors in the league.

Nowitzki's defensive metrics over the past couple of years have been outstanding. Using league averages as a baseline, his per-play score from Synergy Sports suggest that he has saved 63 points above average over the past two seasons, ranking in the 93rd percentile of the league. His length makes him tough to shoot over, and also makes up for some of his diminished foot movement.

He's entering the last year of his contract, which will technically put Nowitzki on the open market next July, it's impossible to imagine Nowitzki in another team's uniform.
