Jason Kidd and the Dallas Mavericks Together Again?


The Dallas Mavericks have emerged as the front-runners for Jason Kidd, who took the Meadowlands court to resounding cheers Tuesday night but is still looking to get traded out of New Jersey by the Feb.21 trading deadline.Just don’t dare ask him about his desire to leave the Nets. After finishing with 11 assists and hitting a clutch three-pointer in the final 1:40 to help the Nets break their nine-game losing streak with an 87-80 win over the Bucks, Kidd refused to discuss his demand to be sent to a contender.

The Nets aren’t happy that Kidd has gone public with his trade request, but only to a point, as a team official started Kidd’s postgame press conference by announcing that he would talk only about the game. Click here for more from the New York Daily News.
