Mavs say Dirk Nowitzki is not engaged

MIAMI -- A report that Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki became engaged to girlfriend Jessica Olsson just days before the start of tonight's NBA Finals is erroneous, the Mavs confirmed.

The report was circulated by mediatakeout.com and picked up by other Dallas-Fort Worth news outlets.

Nowitzki has been dating his Swedish girlfriend for some time now, but apparently any nuptuals will have to wait.
