Kidd In Play? (and Other Rumors)

The Dallas Morning News reports:

Wednesday is when teams officially can begin talking to free agents, and Kidd is expected to get overtures from several teams: Cleveland, Portland, Boston, New York and perhaps the Lakers.

All of those teams except for Portland are stymied by the salary cap. The Knicks can only offer their mid-level exception, expected to be between $5 million and $6 million. Kidd earned $21 million last season.

The Mavericks can pay him any amount up to the league maximum.

Interesting if true.  I always assumed that he'd end up back in Dallas.  I also assumed that we'd be interested in backup point guards not starters.  But of course none of these rumors phase me anymore.

If that doesn't ring your bell, Here are some more rumors for you.
