Jason Kidd, Dallas Mavericks Closing In On Multi-Year Contract, According To Report

The Dallas Mavericks were in the running for free agent point guard Deron Williams, but with Williams' decision to return to the Brooklyn Nets and Jason Terry joining the Boston Celtics, the Mavericks' options appear to be limited at the position. The team also missed out on Steve Nash, who will be heading to the Los Angeles Lakers in a sign-and-trade deal.

The Mavericks might have found a solution to their point guard problem, as they're closing in a multi-year contract with Jason Kidd, according to a report by ESPN.

Jason Kidd appears prepared to end his career where he started it -- with the Dallas Mavericks. The 39-year-old is closing in on a multiyear deal, a source close to the situation said. The source said the deal is not completed, but barring any snags, Kidd will close out his career alongside Dirk Nowitzki. The value of the contract was not known.

Kidd will be entering his 19th season in the NBA and if the deal is signed will very likely close out his NBA career with the team who drafted him originally. Kidd spent the first three seasons of his NBA career with the Mavs before spending time with the Phoenix Suns, then-New Jersey Nets, and then returning to the Mavericks.
