Jason Kidd wants
to trade out of the New Jersey Nets
New Jersey Nets point guard
Jason Kidd want to be traded out of the team.
Kidd confirmed his desire to trade out of the struggling New
Jersey Nets, but the move is not in his hands, this time. "We
tried to make this work. We've found out it doesn't. It's time
for us all to move on," Jason Kidd told ESPN, officially
declaring his desire to leave the team on Monday.
This is not the first time Kidd fires
rumors about a future trade - the Nets were ready to ship the
guard to the L.A. Lakers last February, but Kidd remains with
New Jersey to this day after the negotiations reportedly failed.
And at the beginning of the season, Kidd said that he has no
desire to leave the team, but that was when the Nets held 9-10
record. Today the New Jersey Nets are sitting on 18-26 and Jason
Kidd want out again. But Kidd is under contract through the end
of next season and will make $19.7 million this year and $21.3
million next year, after re-signing with the Nets in 2003, the
deal worth a total of $99 million.
New Jersey Nets officials have not
commented on Jason Kidd's remarks.
