Jason Kidd played almost seven seasons in the greater New York area with the Nets, so when the Knicks came to Dallas on Thursday, writers covering the Knicks were interested in catching up with Kidd.

He was asked about a variety of issues — the new Knicks of coach Mike D’Antoni instead of Isiah Thomas, the attractiveness of New York to the premier free agent class of 2010, and Stephon Marbury as a potential Mavericks player.

In November, the Knicks made two major trades to rid themselves of future salary and to get in position to bid on the 2010 free-agent class, which includes LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.

Kidd said that one or more of the premier players definitely will be tempted to play for the Knicks.

"Oh, yeah," he said. "It’s a great place. That’s one of the best stages on professional sports. When you talk about the likes of those free agents, you can have a better situation being able to not just get one, but get 2 1/2 . So we’ll see."

(For the record, Kidd never explained how to get half of a free agent, but presumably he was talking about a second-tier player.)

When Kidd was asked if he would consider signing with the Knicks in 2010, he said: "I’m the ’09 class."

When pressed, Kidd smiled and said: "Yeah, why not? I’m going to look and see. Coach [D’Antoni] is great. I got to know him a little this summer [with the Olympic team]. D’Antoni has a great philosophy. I think people enjoy watching that."

LeBron, Kidd and possibly Dwyane Wade or another All-Star like Steve Nash, Amare or Chris Bosh on the same team?! If that happens, Knicks are gonna be damn good.

Why will they need Kidd when Nash will be their starting point?

If LeBron signs with NY. He's been dreaming of playing with Jason for a while now. Will the Knicks go with it as a favor for LeBron? Or will they go with Mike D'Antoni and sign Steve Nash? Since Nash knows his offense and the Knicks are one of the teams he's interested in signing.

you guys must dont realize kidd is in LA as a Laker next year, Phil will love him and so will Kobe(not to mention me)
Again - this team, as currently constructed won't make it out of the second round of the playoffs, let alone the West or win the Finals.---fido on 2011 Lakers

I'd say its a coin toss between LA or NY or maybe with the Cavs if LeBron re-signs Cavs or signs with the Knicks. Both Kobe and LeBron publicly said stated that playing with Jason would be a dream.

The Jason Kidd ship has sailed for the Lakers.

I'll take Artest next year - he's still the kind of player the Lakers need.

J-kidd is in a positoin next season to take less money to win a title being 35 years old

artest is going to be 29 and looking for something in the 7 to 8 million range much like maggette did

our hope has to be that artest doesn't get those offers and comes here for the MLE but then we lose lamar because at 23 ariza will be resigned to a long term deal of 5 years most likely

so it will most likely be between ron artest and lamar if we look at those two because we can't have both

well we could but buss would be paying a lot of money in luxury tax

andrew/ gasol
gasol/ odom
artest/ ariza
kobe/ sasha
farmar/ fisher

is beyond a dream line-up

i would love for Kidd, and Fish to play sparingly in the reg. season developing Jordan, and even if we lose Lamar, Ariza can slide to the four sometimes

Jason Kidd is a horrible fit in Dallas, because he wants to run, but they are not...

He would tune out Phil Jackson, like what he did to Avery Johnson...

Kidd or Nash would be perfect for Pringles. Both want to run, and an upgrade over Duhon...

Kidd would be awful in the triangle. No thanks. I'd rather have Nash.

Except Kidd only wants to run... Unless he's fine with the 2nd unit, that will not happen... He is about as stubborn as GP...
