Isiah Thomas is After Jason Kidd


A day after saying he had no superstars,’ Knick coach Isiah Thomas said he will ask the Nets what it would take to land the  on-the-block Jason Kidd. The Nets have been forever looking for a big center, and Eddy Curry could be involved in a potential deal, possibly along with Renaldo Balkman, whom the Nets like. Yesterday, Thomas finally admitted the Knicks no longer are built around Curry/Zach Randolph inside, and that the club needs to excel in two styles, not just as a power, inside team.

It’s a longshot Net president Rod Thorn would deal with the Knicks, other than to raise the bidding. Thorn has admitted the offers have been weak. Knick executive VP Glen Grunwald already inquired about Vince Carter recently, offering Randolph. Kidd’s bombshell that it’s time to move on traveled to L.A., where the Lakers, too, should have interest again. Click here for more from the New York Post.
