Kidd interview about possible trade to Mavs

by February 15, 2008 @ 12:00 am (Category : Uncategorized )

It’s Friday and the NBA’s stars, including Jason Kidd, are in New Orleans for 2008 All-Star Weekend. Friday afternoon, Kidd met with the media and discussed the possible trade that would send him to the Dallas Mavericks. As of now the deal is currently on hold, since Devean George, a small piece of the puzzle, is using a provision in his contract to block his involvement.
Here’s part of what Kidd said today:
Q: You don’t feel like it was an opportunity or a chance that you could still go?
Jason Kidd: I haven’t talked to anybody. I spent last night with my family and just trying to enjoy the All Star festivities today. That’s it. You know, I’m a Net until I’m told otherwise, that I’m a Mav or something else.
Q: What’s been the toughest thing, Jason, about dealing with some of the uncertainty in your situation?
Jason Kidd: This isn’t the first time I’ve been traded, so I don’t think there’s anything that really bothered me. It’s just we’ll find out here soon if there’s a trade or not. Either way, the game of basketball doesn’t change, it’s just in a different city, maybe.
You must read the rest. It’s .

Devean George shoots 0-of-11, wins honor

by February 14, 2008 @ 12:00 am (Category : Uncategorized )

Dallas Mavericks swingman (or whatever position he sorta plays) Devean George, after messing up the Jason Kidd-to-Mavericks trade by using a contract clause to avoid being traded, started at small forward as the team was at home facing the Portland Trail Blazers. In 33 minutes, George shot 0-of-11, including 0-of-4 from three-point range. And he missed both free throw attempts, finishing with 0 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 steal.
The Mavericks won 96-76, so it didn’t really matter.
But in honor of Devean’s play awards him our newly-created ‘Jackass of the Day’ award.
Note that we now retire the existence of this award for today but reserve the right to revive it in the future should another player be worthy of it.
Now, to be fair to George, it isn’t his fault that he’s involved in such a big transaction. He’d probably have done this even if the deal was him to the Nets for a pair of sneakers. He’s just looking out for himself like every player in the league (and most people on planet Earth) tend to do.
But by doing this and then going out and looking like a complete scrub against the Blazers, he deserved some sort of award.

Video of Devean George’s explanation

Last night the Mavericks were set to get Jason Kidd in a trade from the Nets, but Dallas’ Devean George blocked his involvement in the deal, probably just delaying (but possibly killing) the whole thing.
Here is a from George’s post-game interview, explaining what he’s doing and why.

Kidd not in starting lineup tonight

by @ 12:00 am (Category : Uncategorized )

The New Jersey Nets are in Toronto tonight to face the Raptors and Marcus Williams is starting at point guard. No Jason Kidd.
This isn’t surprising, with reports that Kidd is soon to be traded to the Dallas Mavericks, but it’s still significant seeing things start to materialize.
And the Nets started slowly, down 9-2 early and then down 21-11 with 4:19 left in the first quarter.

Report: Devean George blocks Kidd deal

by @ 12:00 am (Category : Uncategorized )

ESPN (Marc Stein) reports: With the New Jersey Nets poised to complete a blockbuster deal to send Jason Kidd back to Dallas on Wednesday night, Mavericks reserve forward Devean George has unexpectedly exercised his right to block the trade, according to NBA front-office sources. Sources close to the situation told that the teams verbally agreed to the deal earlier Wednesday and were preparing to submit the trade for league approval when George informed the Mavericks that he wouldn’t consent to being included in the deal, which is his right based on a rare provision in his one-year contract.
