Kidd going to the Mavs

Recommended Posts

Devean George rejects the trade, he has a no trade clause.

Whats the situation with the all star spot, Kidd was an Eastern Conference All-Star... Will Calderon get the chance now?

Hopefully the Mavs will be forced to come to their senses and realize this deal is ludicrous.

Wow, I never knew Jason Kidd had that much value. ^_^ Kidding, why so many players, why?

Because NBA trades must match salaries to a point...I think within 15%. Kidd is a max contract guy and Dallas is basically giving up a guy on his first contract and a bunch of spare parts.

That's why. :P

No No No the deal was made, and Kidd is worth the King's Ransom you are sending the Nets. Who knows you may win the NBA Finals this year with this deal.

As if the players were not enough to match, I think the Mavs also threw in $3 million in cash. :blink:

I can't wait to see that guy $3 million run the break with RJ and VC on the wings. Who needs JKidd when you have $3 mil?!?

We better. And if Dallas wins the whole thing I'm buying every DVD, shirt, keychain, nick-nack....whatever they have, because it won't happen again in my lifetime. The Mavericks overpaid for this deal and completely mortgaged their future. I'm disgusted. :puke:

If the Mavs didn't trade their whole bench and future for this, I'd agree.

This, if they clear George's issues, is a bittersweet deal. Get Jason Kidd back to where he was drafted, and they have a chance, god forbid they WIN the NBA Championship, it would be great. I liked Diop, and George, and most of these players we traded, but that's not hard to deal with. Two freakin' first round pick?! I guess the only upside, is we could have fantastic years that will really make them early 2nd round picks. Either way, I liked our team how it is.

The $3m is to help buyout Stackhouse so he can go back to Dallas in a month's time for the run-in and playoffs.

Wonder who they can swap in to make the deal work if Devean George won't budge? Mavs might need to resign Keith Van Horn to a part-guaranteed contract and trade him which they've vowed not to do until now.

You know, a lot of people (particularly Mavs fans) are pissed about this - but forgive me for asking... am I missing something here? Mortgaged their future? I don't see where that really comes into play other than Devin Harris' potential. The draft picks are likely late first rounders at best - sure, an all star can be found there, but the chances are slim.

In addition, this Mavs team, as currently assembled, is not "a team of the future" in the same way that LA, New Orleans, etc. could be considered. The Mavericks are a "win now" team. This team had its chance in 2006 and gave away the championship, then were unlucky enough to draw the only team capable of matching up with them in Golden State last season - so clearly, SOMETHING had to be done (obtaining Eddie Jones in the offseason doesn't count). For a "win now" team to come into a situation to get a "win now" point guard is a no-brainer, in my mind. 5 years from now, Dirk Nowitzki would not be any closer to winning a championship with Devin Harris as he was in 2006 or would be now with Jason Kidd. Josh Howard is probably the only guy on that team who has a substantial amount of time left in his career, but the marquee man, Dirk Nowitzki, the man who the entire team is built around, has been in the league nearly a decade and isn't getting younger.

If this team contained Dirk circa 2003 or so, paired with Harris and Howard, I'd say it's a future contender. But this team right now IS a contender NOW. Jason Kidd has maybe 2-3 years tops of quality ball in him. He improves the Mavericks defense, rebounding, passing, running game and overall basketball-IQ. He has 2 NBA Finals appearances to his name, numerous all star selections and as much as I hate him, he gets the job done. Giving up Devin Harris and filler needed to be done to give Dallas the best chance it has to win a title in the next 2-3 seasons.

I never thought guard play was the Mavs' achilles heel. They've needed a big man complement to Dirk for ages now. Now they've lost their bench depth and their guard of the future - for a one-year window in which they still have their most glaring weakness unaddressed.

Rod Thorn fleeced 'em.

Panic move by the Mavs, just like the Suns a week ago.

Question, If the deal eventually gets made, what number would Jason Kidd wear since Josh Howard wears #5? Didnt he wear a different number in Phoenix, if so what number was that?

Now the NBA is investigating because Stackhouse ran off at the mouth and revealed the plan in which the Mavs pick him up after the Nets cut him. That kind of pre-arrangement is a no-no, apparently.

I heard Stack on Stephen A. Smith's show...they were talking about how Jason Kidd would impact the Mavs and Stack kept saying we, as though he would still be on the team. I don't think there's anything wrong with the Nets telling him they would buy him out and him repeating that. However, Stack's comments just makes it seem, as you said, Leeds, that it was prearranged.

Stack would have to wait 30 calendar days before he could resign with Dallas if New Jersey cut him. I bet I know of one other team that would try to make a run at Stack. (Hint: their superstar was just diagnosed with a ligament tear.)
