Jason Kidd Leaves Dallas Mavericks, Signs with NY Knicks

In an unforeseen reversal, Jason Kidd has decided to leave the Dallas Mavericks to join the New York Knicks.

“I think I can help,” Kidd told ESPN The Magazine’s Ric Bucher, adding he felt the Knicks have more “pieces to work with.”

With the Mavericks confident 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.

Kidd originally said that he was interested in playing with friend Deron Williams with the Brooklyn Nets, but will now be playing for their archrival New York Knicks. In addition, rookie sensation Jeremy Lin will likely be leaving the Linsanity of the Big Apple for Houston, who just traded Kyle Lowry to Toronto and lost Goran Dragic to the Phoenix Suns in free agency.
