Default What if Kidd doesn't work out?

If Kidd isn't working out by the deadline, do we trade him for another long contract? I think the Mavs will be over the cap anyway, so why not trade him to a team looking to shed salary?
If so, what targets would the Mavs look at??

Haven't liked this deal from the start. Sure didn't help last year.

He messed with the flow they had going for a few years, but now he used to their style of play and vice versa and it should work out better.

I hope it'll work too. I liked the deal at the start, and I hope the new coach meshes with Kidd well.

Back to the main point though, we have to be prepared if things go south. I think we have enough pieces to continue to make a run at a title without completely redoing the roster.

New York desperately wants to shed salary. They don't have anything I'd want though. Randolph, Curry? Yuck.
New Jersey wants to clear salary as well. Trade Kidd back for Carter and a backup point? Very doubtful.
Denver wants to shed salary, but Iverson expires at the end of the year as well, sort of defeating the purpose of trading an expiring for a longer contract. No thanks to Kenyon Martin as well.
Milwaukee should be better with the addition of Jefferson and a new coach, but if things go bad, maybe a Kidd for Redd, or Jefferson.
Cleveland would love to get their hands on Kidd given Lebron's affinity towards him. They don't have much I'd want though.
Joe Johnson would be a good pickup, but I doubt Atlanta would be interested.
Charlotte is going nowhere, and Richardson, Wallace, and Okafor would all be great pickups, but I don't think Okafor is going anywhere. Then again, the title of Isiah-esque gm goes to MJ this year, so maybe we can swindle them.
Out of orlando, I only like Turkoglu and Howard. Howard is going nowhere, and I think Turk expires at the end of this year and is looking for a nice payday.
Portland has alot, but I don't think they need to shed salary at this time.
I like Jackson out of GSW, and I don't think the Warriors are going anywhere, so maybe they want to rebuild around Ellis. There's also bad blood btw Cuban and Nelson.


Thoughts? Anyone I missed?

If he doesn't work out, then don't resign him and rebuild. Thats what I think...

If not I would probably do Raef Lafrentz(expiring), Joel Pryzbilla, Steve Blake, and a 2009 1st round pick for Jason Kidd and Devean George.

Not that bad on us financially and we net some pretty good role players, along with an expiring and a 1st round pick. The Blazers on the other hand get Jason Kidd as an expiring to sign all their young players to long term deals in the future, as well as to mentor Bayless and Sergio. They don't need anymore picks since they have an abundant of young players already.

With that pick, I'd suggest we draft a pg like Darren Collison or maybe trade up for someone like Jennings.

Don't if its a good trade or not. Just popped in my mind as I read this thread.

Come on you Mavs fans should trust Kidd as we Nets fan did before. He's the one who can make impossible things happen. I dare to say that no one can salvage the Mavs if Kidd can't.

Last year there were a few factors why it didn't work. It's tough to come in, even Jason Kidd, and immediately mesh with a new team. A full training camp should be a big help. Plus Avery was not using him correctly. Turning him into a spot up shooter and taking the ball out of his hands isn't a good move. Also by then the team had given up on Avery, nice mess for Kidd to walk into. The flow was messed up before he got there.

I'm hoping it will work and there won't be a need to make any moves. But with his huge expiring contract, it should be attractive to someone out there thinking he could be the final piece at the deadline.

I like the idea of Kidd and a filler for Pryzz, Raef, Blake, and a 1st.

Yeah but I definitely would NOT do it if we were to add Bass in the trade.
