2012 NBA Playoffs Rumors: Jason Kidd Could Retire After This Season If He Doesn't Get a Good Offer

Jason Kidd's career is almost coming to an end and it may as well be this off-season.

According to Sports Illustrated's Chris Mannix, Kidd will force himself to retire unless if he gets a mid-level type offer.

At 40-years-old, Kidd could be at the veteran's minimum or small exception. However, if he gets that, his NBA career will come to an end.

Tweets Mannix:


Kidd averaged 6.2 points, 5.5 assists, and 4.1 rebounds per game this season. His Mavericks currently trail the Oklahoma City Thunder 2-0 in Round One of the NBA Playoffs.

If he doesn't get the offer he wants from Dallas, I wouldn't be surprised if some teams out there are interested enough to sign him to that kind of deal. Miami could be an option if they can't land Steve Nash.
