What will the Nets do with the
malcontent point guard? From AP-
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Jason Kidd says he wants to be traded from the slumping New Jersey Nets. “We tried to make this work. We’ve found out it doesn’t,” Kidd told ESPN The Magazine on Monday. “It’s time for us all to move on.”
The Nets, losers of nine in a row, were scheduled to play the Milwaukee Bucks at home Tuesday night. Kidd attended the team’s morning shootaround but did not talk to reporters.
Nets president Rod Thorn did not immediately return a phone message Tuesday.
Trade speculation has followed Kidd since last February when the Nets reportedly were close to making a deal that would have sent him to the Los Angeles Lakers.
Last month, Kidd sat out a game against the New York Knicks with a migraine, a move suspected by some to be a one-day walkout to try and force a trade or new contract.
At a news conference, Kidd denied those were his motives, saying, “I am having one of my best seasons â€” why would I want to be asked to be traded? And as a team, we are doing better than last year.”
New Jersey was 9-10 at the time. Since then, the team has dropped 16 of 25 games to fall to 18-26.
Truthfully I’d trade Kidd. He isn’t helping the Nuts as much as he is hurting the team. Trade the idiot for two good players. New Jersey won’t be the NBA’s worst afterwards. The Miami Heat have a headlock on that at present.
