Jason Kidd Interested In Mentoring Deron Williams Or J. Lin
“My days of playing 38 minutes are over,” said Kidd, 39, adding that he’d be okay with being a backup for the first time in his career. “We (Williams and I) could play off each other and hopefully be successful.”
Kidd also was asked specifically about the Knicks, and said he’d enjoy helping groom Jeremy Lin. The Knicks won’t have much cap space, perhaps none, if they use the mid-level exception to re-sign Lin.
“That would be a lot of fun to help a player like that,” Kidd said. “Just share the things that helped me be successful in this league.”
