Dallas Not Done Dealing for Jason Kidd


Jason Kidd may still wind up in Dallas. But it won’t be today. Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban greeted questions about the trade that wasn’t with the words, ‘nothing new to report.’ Officials with the Mavericks and New Jersey Nets either chose their words carefully or didn’t say anything at all in the aftermath of the complex deal that hit an unexpected roadblock.

Devean George, the player in the eye of this storm, was in the starting lineup Thursday as the Mavericks faced the Phoenix Suns in the final game before the All-Star break. He spoke to TNT, but declined to speak to local reporters before the game about his decision to exercise a clause in his contract that allows him to stay with the Mavericks.
