Dirk Nowitzki isn't holding his breath on the Dallas Mavericks landing Carmelo Anthony.

When asked Friday about how realistic it would be to see Anthony in a Mavs uniform, Nowitzki said: "Not really."

"Somebody in his camp brought up the Mavericks first. It's not like we brought him up. If we're actually on his radar, then it's great. Then, we obviously have to look at it," Nowitzki said as he prepared for his Heroes Celebrity baseball game. "Like I've said, he's obviously one of the most explosive scorers that we have in this league. If a player like that has your team on the radar, [president of basketball operations] Donnie [Nelson] and [owner] Mark [Cuban] obviously have to look at it. Do I think it's realistic? No."

Sources have told ESPN.com's Marc Stein that potential free-agent destinations for Anthony include Dallas, Chicago and Houston.

While it sounds unlikely the Mavs will get Anthony, Nowitzki is still making his way to the Big Apple next week, where he plans on attending former teammate Steve Nash's charity soccer game. This will be the first time that Nowitzki has been able to participate in Nash's event.
