Jason Kidd To Sign 3-Year Contract With Dallas Mavericks, According To Report

Jason Kidd was expected to follow Deron Williams wherever he went, but given the Brooklyn Nets' current salary cap situation and the offer he's rumored to have received from the Dallas Mavericks, he can't be blamed for backing out of that plan. According to ESPN's Marc Stein, Kidd will sign a three-year contract with the Mavericks worth $9 million.

That contract will keep Kidd on the books with Dallas until he is age 42. The Mavericks were desperate to sign a point guard after they missed out on both Williams and rumored target Steve Nash, but they're likely to catch some criticism for this deal if it does come to fruition. Even though Kidd has stayed healthy enough to play regularly well into his 30s, his numbers have declined in each of the last two seasons.

Kidd started his NBA career in Dallas, and he's played for the Mavericks for the last five seasons.
