08:05 AM ET 04.12 | If it's up to Jason Kidd, Thursday's trip to Golden State with the Mavs won't be his last. Sources with knowledge of the Mavericks' thinking likewise indicate that management is determined to find a way to re-sign the former Cal star in free agency even amid the roster clearout that Dallas has planned to create the requisite salary-cap space to pursue Dallas-area native Deron Williams in free agency this summer. ... Sources say, furthermore, that Kidd has a good relationship with Williams from their time playing together on Team USA. One source close to the situation, asked if bringing Kidd back remains part of the Mavs' plans, said: "Absolutely." Furthermore, team sources say the 10-time All-Star happily would move into a backup role.

Man that Cuban really ruined this team.

I wouldn't say he ruined it. He decided not to compete for a championship this year. It's a business move called sacrificing short term gains for long term growth. It's a huge risk that can go either way. But if you look at team he had objectively it becomes clear he had to forgo defending the crown.

I don't hate the Mavs by any means. I truly believe that Cuban made rash decisions, prematurely.

I think Cuban knows his financial structure much better than any of us.

He paid for 1 Championship and then didnt sign the other part of that team. The Mavs will have money to get a couple pieces to try for a run next year.

I love how you all are just assuming Dallas has zero chance this year. Sounds alot like last year. Clearly you guys don't learn from your mistakes.
