Golden State Reportedly Interested In Jason Kidd

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.

For all the latest news and notes on the Mavericks free agency plans, stay tuned to the SB Nation Dallas story-stream as well as Mavs Moneyball.
