    Default Jason Kidd

    Can Pelister: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] a source close to Kidd told me. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]


    Not the best source but a possibility. What if the Knicks acquire Jason Kidd. The article below puts a good 5 reasons on getting Kidd. I agree as I'm sure you agree getting Kidd would help, but maybe I'm wrong.

    During his first tenure with the Mavericks, Kiddís salary totaled $55 million. When he left the Mavericks for the New Jersey [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], Kidd signed a six-year, $99 million deal. Since returning to Dallas, Kidd has played three seasons and has earned himself another $24.5 million, for a combined total of [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].
    Now that his career is coming to a close, Kidd will most likely take a pay cut to play for the team of his choosing. He will most likely sign the veteranís minimum contract, which for a player with his experience will total [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].
    The Knicks donít have much money to spend on potential free agents, so being able to sign Kidd for cheap will allow them to also go after a big man or wing player with their Mid Level Exception.

    Kidd would be a great mentor for Lin and he can still ball too. He can get some minutes at the 2 guard spot, he'd be perfect

    Kidd has shot and knows the importance of ball movement. The Knicks already have a strong leader on defense in Tyson Chandler and can gain a strong leader in Kidd on offense.

    I just realized Kidd makes more sense then Nash. He can play the 2 guard and with Shump out we need someone to play that position. Hes still a good defender too

    My sources say that it's down to the Knicks and Nets, but Miami has emerged as a new favorite.

    Exactly he could rebound, pass, shoot, and guard. The Knicks donít have much money to spend on potential free agents, so being able to sign Kidd for cheap will allow them to also go after a big man or wing player with their Mid Level Exception.

    This is why the Knicks should pursue Kidd over Nash. It seems other teams are on the list, I'm going on some guys Twitter I don't know from Hoopshype. Seeing this made me realize the same as KingStarbury3, Why it might be better than sign and trading for Steve Nash.

    If we sign & trade for Nash, we would still have the $3M mini MLE to use on another FA anyway. Nash is a clear upgrade over J Kidd at this stage in their careers. I would welcome having either of them but I think the Knicks would be much better off swinging a S&T for Nash & then focusing their attention on signing Camby with the mini MLE. That would leave us with a stacked roster next season:

    C - Chandler / Camby
    PF - Stoudemire / Harrellson
    SF - Anthony / Novak (or Tolliver if Novak signs a big contract elsewhere)
    SG - Smith (Shumpert when healthy) / veteran's min FA (Mo Evans?)
    PG - Nash / Lin
