While all eyes in Dallas remain firmly rested on native son Deron Williams, it seems the Mavericks may have some competition for their incumbent PG, the 39-year old Jason Kidd.
According to a report from the San Francisco Chronicle, the Golden State Warriors are interested in bringing Kidd back home to the Bay Area to back up Stephen Curry:
The Warriors think Andre Miller might have played his way over mid-level money with a strong playoff showing, but they believe they have a good chance at landing Jason Kidd. If Deron Williams signs with Dallas, the Warriors can tempt Kidd with the mid-level exception and offer the Bay Area native a front-office job after he retires.
In a new CBA where salary cap flexibility is at a premium, paying Kidd anything more than the league minimum would be a tough pill to swallow. He averaged 6 points, 5 assists and 4 rebounds on 36% last season all while his defense continued to regress in his 18th season in the NBA.
