After an incredibly career in the NBA with 10 All-Star appearances and one NBA title, future Hall of Fame point guard Jason Kidd is nearing the end of time in the league. Even though the veteran point guard has let it be known that he would like to stay with the Dallas Mavericks for at least one more year, the reality is that the Mavs are doing everything within their power to sign Deron Williams in the off-season.
With Williams at the top of their free agent wish list, Kidd remaining with Dallas is unlikely as he will be regulated to the bench and no longer considered a vital piece to the championship puzzle for owner Mark Cuban.
Now that Kidd’s time in Dallas is seemingly coming to an end, the unrestricted free agent will have to decide what direction he’d like to go in before calling it a career. Obviously, if there is lack of interest in the aging veteran, Kidd will simply retire, but there appears to be three teams potentially ready to sign him.
The first team reportedly showing interest in Kidd was the Chicago Bulls. With Derrick Rose out as much as year while recovering from surgery on the torn ACL, the Bulls are in need of a short-term replacement and Kidd fits the bill. Even though this would give Kidd a chance at another title, the veteran hasn’t expressed much interest in joining the Bulls.
The real possibilities at this point in time for Kidd seem to be in New York. The New York Knicks would like to bring him in to mentor up-and-comer Jeremy Lin for a year or two and the Brooklyn Nets want a reunion, especially if Williams heads elsewhere in free agency.
Both are likely destinations for the future Hall of Famer in what could be his farewell season next year.
