According to a report in the Chicago Tribune, one league GM, upon inquiring about the availability of Vince Carter, was asked by the Nets if he'd be interested in trading for Jason Kidd instead.
While Kidd's off-court life has been a mess lately, he has played some of the best basketball of his career. He had 19 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds in a 105-95 victory over the Pacers yesterday and has seven triple-doubles this season, by far the most in the league.
JUST ASK HIM:
Kidd has yet to be invited to play for the U.S. national team that will compete in an international tournament over the summer, but if he is, he'll say yes.
Kidd didn't hesitate when asked if he'd accept an invitation to play in the FIBA Americas Championship in Las Vegas from Aug.22 to Sept.2.
"Yes, I would," Kidd said.
