Dirk Nowitzki has made a public plea for Carmelo Anthony to considering joining him in Dallas.

“If Carmelo would really love to come here," Nowitzki said on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas, “we'd love to have him."

Anthony will become a free agent on July 1st and the Dallas Mavericks will have the salary cap space to offer Anthony a lucrative deal. Coincidentally, Mavs owner Mark Cuban and Garden Chairman James Dolan have a close relationship.
