In a fairly surprising turn of events, future Hall of Fame free agent point guard Jason Kidd has agreed to sign with the New York Knicks Рand not return to the Dallas Mavericks, a team he helped win a championship with in 2011. Kidd, 39, is expected to receive a three-year deal from New York worth an upwards of $10 million. Given his age and mileage, Kidd no longer possesses the intangibles he once did (has averaged only 7.1 points and 6.9 assists per game the past two seasons), but he can provide the Knicks with a much needed veteran presence in the locker room and on the floor, running the half-court offense and knocking down the occasional trey.

The Knicks are still amisdt sorting out the situation with their own (restricted) free agent point guard, Jeremy Lin. According to reports, Lin has agreed in principle to a contract offer he’s received from the Houston Rockets (said to be 4 years, nearly $30 million). The Knicks have until the end of next week to match that offer in order to retain him. It is widely expected the Knicks will do just that, despite the recent acquisition of Kidd.
