DALLAS (AP) - Dirk Nowitzki is considering joining the German national team this summer to help their chances of qualifying for the 2012 Summer Olympics.

Nowitzki told ESPN 103.3 FM on Tuesday that he would decide within a few weeks.

Germany must finish among the top six of the 24 teams at the EuroBasket tournament to be eligible to qualify for the next Olympics.

Nowitzki hasn’t played for Germany since the 2008 Olympics, an experience he’s called among the highlights of his career.

He said he’s told German officials he’d help the next generation get to the Olympics. However, the Mavs’ extended run and ensuing celebrations have left the NBA finals MVP in need of some down time.
