Kidd Is Heading to New York.
Jason Kidd was close to signing with the Dallas Mavericks for 3 years, 9 million deal. But in a strange turn of events, Kidd will now play with the New York Knicks. The Knicks are going to use the Mini Mid Level in order to sign the veteran guard. New York is hoping to bring Kidd as a mentor to Jeremy Lin and another guard who can pass and organize an offense.
Signing Kidd to a three year deal at this point it's not a good signing, i get that he has a very high iq and can help Lin, but at this point Kidd is only a spot up shooter and not the dynamic guard he once was. At the end of his three year deal, Kidd will end up being 42 years old. Knicks fans aren't too pissed about this, at least he's better than Toney Douglas, right?
