The last time Jason Kidd was mentioned as a potential free agent target for the San Antonio Spurs was in the 2003 offseason after Tony Parker underperformed against Kidd in the NBA Finals.
Kidd was a waking triple-double then. Now he is nearing the end of his career, and like a responsible veteran, he’s letting everyone know he may be ready for a backup role.
