J-Kidd for Harris, Diop, plus two #1 draft picks – First thoughts

If this rumoured trade happens … Mavericks close again on landing Kidd … astute NBA observers would do well to keep in mind the initial assessment of Jamal Washburn (one of the original ‘Three J’s’ for the Mavs), according to Tim MacMahon (Dallas Mavericks Blog, Kidd won’t make much difference):

“I still think they’re about the same, … they’re still behind the Los Angeles Lakers, the Phoenix Suns and also the San Antonio Spurs, … Jason Kidd is an upgrade; he’s a Hall of Famer. But they’re going to lose something in that paint area.”

Meanwhile, from New Jersey’s point of view … this move allows the Nets to re-stock their cupboard (with useful pieces for the future) while keeping their hopes alive to grab the 8th spot in the Eastern Conference Play-offs this season.

If you’re a Nets fans today, looking at the following line-up …

Starters:
Devin Harris/PG
Vince Carter/OG
Richard Jefferson/SF
Sean Williams/PF
Nenad Krstic/C  

Key Bench Players:
Marcus Williams/PG
Bostjan Nachbar/G-F
Josh Boone/PF
DeSagana Diop/C

(with a plethora of serviceable reserves AND multiple 1st Round Draft Picks)

you’re smiling, ear-to-ear … as this is the best you could’ve hoped for following Jason Kidd’s recent ‘public’ trade request.
