Kidd re-signs with Mavericks
DALLAS -- The Mavericks have re-signed Jason Kidd.
The team announced that free agent point guard signed on Saturday, five days after owner Mark Cuban confirmed that Kidd was returning. Kidd agreed to a three-year contract worth more than $25 million.
The 37-year-old Kidd could finish his career where it started in 1994 -- with the Mavericks. The No. 2 pick out of California returned to Dallas in a trade last year with New Jersey, where he made two trips to the NBA finals with the Nets.
The nine-time All-Star is third on the NBA's career list in assists (10,199) and triple-doubles (103).
Kidd has averaged 13.8 points, 6.7 rebounds and 9.2 assists in 15 NBA seasons.
