So it looks like a different deal is now in the works between the Dallas Mavericks and New Jersey Nets for Jason Kidd. With the announcement of the first deal and its subsequent fall-out, you knew it was just a matter of time before this deal would get done (trade deadline is this Thursday, by the way).
REVISED KIDD DEAL!
- Dallas gets: Jason Kidd and Malik Allen
- New Jersey gets: Devin Harris, DeSagana Diop, Maurice Ager, retired forward Keith Van Horn, Trenton Hassell, two first round picks, and $3 million
I always love it when they pay guys who are retired just so salaries match up. It really is a ridiculous notion. So Van Horn, who has been retired for a year and a half, will now either get a shot with the Nets (who actually drafted him) or will be paid to do nothing. How do I get that gig?
Seems like a better deal for the Mavs now that they can keep Stackhouse (although he was coming back in 30 days anyways) and basically lose Hassell. I still cannot believe they are giving up Harris for a 35-year-old guard, but Mark Cuban has been itching for a title ever since it was stolen from him by Dwayne Wade.
The fantasy implications are still the same since the major pieces did not change. You can read about them here.
