In another unforeseen twist of this wild offseason, sources say Jason Kidd has decided to leave Mavs and join Knicks on a multiyear deal.

Mavs were confident they'd close three-year, $9M deal with Kidd but after all-day deliberations w/both teams Kidd has committed to Knicks



In an unforeseen reversal, Jason Kidd has decided to leave the Dallas Mavericks to join the New York Knicks, according to sources familiar with the decision.

With the Mavericks confident that they were closing in Thursday on a verbal agreement on a three-year deal with Kidd worth $9 million, sources told ESPN.com that Kidd -- after all-day deliberations with both teams -- has decided instead to leave Dallas to join the Knicks for a similar deal.

The contract can't actually be signed until July 11, which is the first day new NBA contracts can be signed. It's also possible, one source said, that Kidd could ultimately move to the Knicks in a sign-and-trade deal.

Sources briefed on the matter told ESPN.com that Kidd was ultimately swayed to take the Knicks' offer to come to New York and take on the challenge of trying to help the Knicks move into the Eastern Conference and also mentor fans darling' Jeremy Lin.

Sick.....he is going to be a great mentor for Jeremy Lin.

Payton mentored Kidd and now Kidd will mentor Lin. :rockon:

One California kid to another.

Why?? they drafted him and he won a championship there.. plus from all reports I've heard Cuban is a terrific players-first type of owner.

At this point, isn't it only news if someone actually GOES to Dallas?

When it rains, it pours. Next step for Dallas, ship Shawn Marion to the Lakers for World Peace, filler

As stated earlier, inb4Broussard
Dallas fans must be in a very disappointed and frustrated state right now. Feels weird though considering Kidd spent his prime days in Jersey.
