DALLAS (AP) - The on-again, off-again Jason Kidd trade to the
Dallas Mavericks appears on again although in a slightly different
swap than originally arranged.
The new deal is being reported by various media outlets. It has
Kidd and forward Malik Allen going to Dallas for point guard Devin
Harris, center DeSagana Diop (DEE'-ahp) and swingman Maurice Ager,
plus a few new pieces: retired forward Keith Van Horn and Trenton
New Jersey also will get two first-round draft picks and 3
Van Horn and Hassell replace Jerry Stackhouse and Devean George
in the original deal. George nixed the original trade.
The reconfigured proposal is expected to be offered for league
approval Monday. If all goes as planned, Kidd could make his return
to the team that drafted him when the Mavericks play in New Orleans
on Wednesday night.
