ESPN New York's Ohm Youngmisuk spotted Knicks guard Jason Kidd at a charity event in New York city this evening, and heard "that's the plan" when the 40-year-old veteran was asked if he is coming back next season. Kidd added that he'll take the next couple of days to think about whether or not he'll decide to return, and if so, it would be with the Knicks (Twitter links). Having just completed his 18th season in the NBA, the 6'4 guard is still under contract for two more seasons at about $3.09MM per year.
Marc Berman of the New York Post followed up with an article that shared some of the specifics of Jason's comments, later mentioning that Kidd had told Knicks GM Glen Grunwald last week that he had planned on returning:
"I am thinking about it. We’ll see. I have to make a decision. We’ll see what happens. Right now I plan on coming back but in the next couple of days or a week or so, I’m going to think about it if I should keep playing or trying something different…There’s a lot different stuff I may have the opportunity to do,’’ said Kidd. “If I play, I plan on playing for the Knicks.’’
