DAL­LAS — Nine-time Al­lS­tar Dirk Now­itzki has signed his new con­tract with the Dal­las Mav­er­icks.

The Mav­er­icks an­nounced the sign­ing in a state­ment is­sued Mon­day. Team of­fi­cials re­leased no terms of the deal. How­ever, a per­son fa­mil­iar with the ne­go­ti­a­tions told The As­so­ci­ated Press when the agree­ment was reached ear­lier this month that the deal is for more than $80 mil­lion over four years, with a no-trade clause.

At 32, Now­itzki opted out of the fi­nal year of his con­tract to be­come an un­re­stricted free agent for the first time, but he didn’t talk se­ri­ously with any other teams.

The 12-year NBA vet­eran has av­er­aged 22.9 points, 8.5 with 21,111 points and tops the Mavs in ca­reer re­bound­ing with 7,802. re­bounds, 2.7 as­sists, one block and 36.7 min­utes in 920 ca­reer games. He is the Mav­er­icks’ ca­reer scor­ing leader
