Kidd in Play (Part II)

Just ran a quick errand and heard Norm talking about the possible Jason Kidd trade (for Devin Harris and Jerry Stackhouse). It’s not news, but I was all excited to post that headline. Bummer that someone beat me to it. (But it’s in Canada, so does it count?)

    From ESPN.com Rumor Central:

    The Nets are discussing a complicated three-team scenario with the Mavericks and Blazers in which Jason Kidd would go to Dallas, league sources said.
    In return, the Nets would get back young players (Jarrett Jack and Travis Outlaw), expiring contracts (Devean George, DeSagana Diop), Jerry Stackhouse, draft picks and cash. More players, including other Nets, would be involved. — The Record

    The Dallas Mavericks have emerged as the front-runners for Jason Kidd.
    “I can’t imagine Rod Thorn sending Kidd to a team in the East,” said an Eastern Conference GM, referring to the Nets president. “They’re going to want to get Kidd as far away from Dodge as possible. Dallas is a legitimate option.” — New York Daily News

    The Lakers are not expected to be a player in a trade for New Jersey’s Jason Kidd, a source said. — Los Angeles Times

    To quote Norm, “No, No, No, No, Never, Never, No, NO, Never…”

    Let me get this straight, Dallas would give up Jerry Stackhouse, DeSagana Diop, Devean George, several draft picks and cash and in return they would get Jason Kidd who has MAYBE 3 years left in his declining career?

    Two questions – where do the Blazers come into play in this supposed deal and why the hell would Dallas give up so much for one guy who’s at the end of his career?

  4. Liles says:

    Also consider this: Cuban would have to pay $21 million to the Nets in cap tax and cover Kidd’s $21 million salary next year.

    I’m with Norm. I like Kidd, but not if it means giving up Stack or Harris… with or without the huge payout.

    Kidd is a Hall of Famer. He is better then Devin and he makes the Mavs better…for a few more years. I have no problem with the Mavs going all in to try to win the championship in the next few years. Kidd, Howard, and Dirk would be a sick combo. GET IT DONE!
