Cavaliers inquire about Kidd

The New York Post reported that the Cavaliers are interested in Jason Kidd.

“I have it on excellent authority the Cavaliers – desperate to relieve LeBron James of his playmaking-for-others-and-himself obligation, and transform him into an open court, post-up receiver – called the Nets to voice their fondness for Kidd.

“I don’t look for that to happen,” said someone in the know. “Given the choice between playing in Cleveland with LeBron or in Los Angeles with Kobe, I suspect we know which way Kidd would lean. You definitely don’t want an unhappy impact player.”

The Lakers are interested in Kidd too. They had offered a couple first-round draft picks and several expiring contracts for Kidd. Chris Mihm, Aaron McKie.
