Jason Kidd is leaving the Dallas Mavericks to join the New York Kicks.
Kidd told Kidd told ESPN The Magazine’s Ric Bucher that he thinks he can help the Knicks.
Kidd turned 39 and March will make the Knicks his fourth and likely final, NBA home. He’s spent time with the Suns and Nets as well as two tours of duty with the Mavericks. He appeared in 48 games last season for the Mavericks in a part-time role, chipping in 6.2 points per-game as well as 4.1 rebounds.
He’ll be taking on a mentoring roll off the bench in NY.
No deals can be signed until July 11th, however ESPN is reporting that it is possible Kidd could be moved in a sign and trade.
