Jason Kidd To Sign Multi-Year Deal With New York Knicks, According To Report

The exodus from the Dallas Mavericks during the 2012 offseason continues. On Thursday, early reports came out that veteran star Jason Kidd will not be returning to the Mavs for the 2012-13 season, which is a move that comes as a surprise to many.

Marc Stein of ESPN reports that Kidd has decided to leave the Mavs and head east. Stein's sources tell him that Kidd will be taking a multi-year deal with the New York Knicks.

Kidd has been with the Mavericks since 2008 and helped the team win an NBA championship in 2011. Many expected Kidd to wrap up his career with the Mavs, the team that originally drafted him in 1994 and for whom he played his first two NBA seasons.
