Jason Kidd wants to play next year - Apr 13, 2012

Jason Kidd (6'4''-PG-73, college: California) has played in 24 career homecoming games on the road against the Golden State Warriors in his 18 seasons with the Dallas Mavericks, Phoenix Suns and New Jersey Nets.

Yet Kidd insisted Wednesday, on the eve of the Mavericks' second and final visit of the season to Golden State, that Thursday night's nationally televised showdown on TNT won't be his last game on Oakland hardwood.

'I want to play another year,' Kidd told ESPN.com.

Despite turning 39 on March 23 and struggling throughout this lockout-shortened season with various back, calf and groin ailments that have shelved him for 15 games -- including the Mavericks' previous trip to Oakland on March 10 -- Kidd says he's determined to play on to try to help Dallas add to the breakthrough championship it won last season.

Sources with knowledge of the Mavericks' thinking likewise indicate that management is determined to find a way to re-sign the former Cal star in free agency even amid the roster clearout that Dallas has planned to create the requisite salary-cap space to pursue Dallas-area native Deron Williams in free agency this summer. Kidd's most recent three-year contract expires at season's end, but he long has been regarded as one of the Mavs' point men for recruiting free agents since returning to Dallas in 2008. Sources say, furthermore, that Kidd has a good relationship with Williams from their time playing together on Team USA.

One source close to the situation, asked if bringing Kidd back remains part of the Mavs' plans, said: 'Absolutely.'

Furthermore, team sources say the 10-time All-Star happily would move into a backup role should the Mavs win the Williams sweepstakes.

On the current squad, though, Kidd's teammates openly have longed for his return after a groin injury forced him to sit out four games last week. Although he's generating career-low numbers in virtually every category, Kidd continues to run the Mavericks' offense with a level of precision no one else on the roster can match, with half-court execution ranking as one of the strengths that propelled Dallas past the favored Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat in two of its four playoff rounds last spring.

Kidd returned to the lineup in Tuesday night's home win over Sacramento and had seven points, seven assists and six rebounds in 22 minutes and said afterward it was 'the best he's felt all season' from a health standpoint.

This is just the fifth time Kidd has missed at least 15 games in a season.

The Mavericks believe his health woes, as much as anything, have contributed to Kidd's modest averages in points (5.9), rebounds (4.1), and assists per game (5.3), as well as his career low shooting percentage (.347).

Kidd has recorded two of his 107 career triple-doubles in Oakland and has lifetime averages of 16.8 points, 10.3 assists and 6.7 rebounds against the Warriors to go with a record of 13-11. He has never faced the Warriors in a playoff game.

James Harden
Harden leads Rockets past Timberwolves in 142-130 shootout - 23 hours ago
Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni wasn't exactly thrilled with his team's shootout win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday night. "I didn't think we played very good," said D'Antoni, disappointed by his club's defensive effort as both squads set season scoring highs in Houston's 142-130 victory. " Defence is all about battle, heart and just following the schemes and we just - sometimes, we have breakdowns," he added. "It's unbelievable and we've got to get better." James Harden (6'5''-S...   [read more]

Bulls take advantage of James' absence, beat Cavs 117-99 - 23 hours ago
Dwyane Wade (6'4''-G-82, college: Marquette) scored 20 points and Jimmy Butler (6'7''-G/F-89, college: Marquette) recorded a triple-double, leading the Chicago Bulls to a 117-99 victory Saturday night over the Cleveland Cavaliers, who played without LeBron James (6'8''-SF-84). James missed the game with an illness, and Cleveland struggled as it often does when the four-time MVP doesn't play. The Cavaliers are 4-19 without James since he returned to Cleveland in 2014, including 0-4 this se...   [read more]

Andrew Bogut Expected To Join Cavaliers - 13 hours ago
Andrew Bogut (7'0''-C-84, college: Utah) is expected to join the Cavaliers once he reaches a buyout agreement with the Sixers, sources tell Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com. Cleveland is expected to add Deron Williams(6'3''-PG-84, college: Illinois) on Monday and it currently has only one open roster spot, so the team will need to make a corresponding move should it plan to add both players. Bogut was sent to Philadelphia as part of the Nerlens Noel trade, but he hasn't reported to the team. He m...   [read more]
