The Fort Worth Star-Telegram is reporting that the Dallas Mavs are eager to resign Jason Kidd to a new contract.
It is reported that “It’s pretty obvious that decision already has been made. The owner apparently wants him back. The general manager wants him back. The coach is begging both of them to bring him back.
It’s really just a matter of the two sides getting together on a new contract at this point.
"If you want to be successful in the postseason, you have to have a great quarterback," GM Donnie Nelson said Friday. "Jason provides that.
"Jason is really the straw that stirs the drink as far as getting guys in the right position, and that’s just the on-the-court stuff. The off-the-court stuff is even more important. Guys in the locker room know they’re going to get great leadership [from Kidd] every night."
