Kidd Wants Out- Confirmed With Quote

While initial reports had Kidd, 34, insisting on being sent to a contender, he said Monday that he realizes there are no guarantees in any scenario. At this point, he simply wants to play for a team that can compete every night and utilize his talents.

"It used to be if I got a triple-double, that was an automatic win," he said. "That's just not the case now. We tried to make this work. We've found out it doesn't. It's time for us all to move on."
What teams can even take on his contract/match the numbers salary wise that are contending right now anyway?

19 million this year and 21 million next. That's going to be tough.

I doubt Thorn is looking to move him to the East, but Miami's got Jason Williams, Ricky Davis with expiring contracts making about 16 million a year. They could throw in a first rounder and some filler...

The Lakers/Nets have a few combo's that could work with Odom and Kidd being the centerpieces with Kwame being the filler to match Kidds contract. Farmar, Brown, Odom for Kidd and Magloire works.

I can't believe Kwame makes 9 million a year and Odom makes 13.5.

New Jersey is so out of the playoff picture now :D

WOW ... he must really want out then. :(

I wonder if the Nets would be interested in Emery. The Sens could really use Kidd right now. :D
