DALLAS -- Jason Kidd appears headed back to where his career
began, rejoining the Dallas Mavericks in the latest Western Conference megatrade.
Kidd is the centerpiece of a proposed deal between the Mavericks
and New Jersey.
Various media reports say Dallas will send emerging point guard
Devin Harris, veteran Jerry Stackhouse and reserves DeSagana Diop,
Devean George and Maurice Ager to the Nets.
The details still were being worked out, but Stackhouse said his
agent told him the trade would be completed.
Stackhouse told The Associated Press, quote: "Now I think it's
pretty much a done deal."
Stackhouse added that he may be able to rejoin Dallas within 30
days, an indication the Nets would buy out his contract.
By adding Kidd, the Mavericks are clearly in a win-now mode.
He's ten years older than Harris, but also far more ready to
lead a team on a title hunt.
The Mavericks are also reportedly intrested in dealing a second round pick to the Nets for Aggie Antoine Wright.
