Eric Pincus of HoopsWorld:
An informed source has told HOOPSWORLD that Jason Kidd intends to return to the Dallas Mavericks for a three-year, $24 million contract. Kidd has indicated to the Mavericks and New York Knicks that he’ll mull over their respective offers over the weekend. The Knicks are said to be offering Jason a guaranteed three years at the Mid-Level Exception (MLE) which works out to be approximately $18.1 million. Barring a surprising change of events, Kidd is expected to notify the Dallas on Monday that he’ll take their offer which would start at approximately $7.25 million for the upcoming season…Expect the decision to be announced after the July 4th weekend.
This is a rumor. That much should be known by the title of this post, and by the language that Pincus uses. There may be some truth to it, and there may not. But hey, it’s something, right?
