Jason Kidd Open to Brooklyn Nets Move
There’s yet another thing contingent on Deron Williams’ re-signing with the Nets: Jason Kidd’s interest in playing in Brooklyn.
The future Hall of Famer, who will become a free agent on July 1, said Monday that owner Mikhail Prokhorov and the move to Brooklyn are alluring aspects of why he’s considering a reconnection with the Nets.
But Williams “is the key.”
“My days of playing 38 minutes are over,” said Kidd, 39, adding that he’d be okay with being a backup for the first time in his career. “We (Williams and I) could play off each other and hopefully be successful.”
When asked about free agency in general terms, Kidd said he’d like to re-sign with Mavs but it’s too early for any commitments. “Brooklyn” was the only other team he mentioned.
