Interesting report about Kidd wanting out… Also, check the “related links” for more reports. Should be interesting for New Jersey right now before the deadline. Do the Lakers pursue Kidd?
RealGM: New Jersey’s Star-Ledger has reported that Jason’s Kidd’s agent Jeff Schwartz has asked Nets’ President Rod Thorn to trade his client to a contender before February’s trade deadline. The information was received from several unnamed league sources.
The problems continue to add up for Thorn as trading Kidd will not be easy if he wants to get even close to equal value in return.
“Right now things are going very poorly for us,” Thorn told the Star-Ledger. “Historically, those are the times when you don’t get offered what you might consider fair deals. And sometimes you feel that maybe you should do something to do something, but those are the times you have to be very cognizant and careful about what the results of your actions might be.”
