ESPN Says Kidd Trade Rumors True — Back To Big D?

***EDIT*** The deal is done.

***EDIT EDIT*** Devean George blocks the deal.

Marc Stein reports for ESPN.

Although sources say that the teams are still sorting out final details, this deal was described as “imminent” by one source close to the process after negotiations moved to an advanced stage Tuesday night. The proposed swap — salvaged from talks of a three-way trade with Portland that developed and fizzled quickly two weeks ago — would require Dallas to send 24-year-old point guard Devin Harris, veteran swingman Jerry Stackhouse, the expiring contracts of center DeSegana Diop and swingman Devean George and another player such as guard Maurice Ager to New Jersey for Kidd and possibly forward Malik Allen or veteran guard Darrell Armstrong.

It’s believed that Dallas would also send New Jersey cash ($3 million is the league maximum) and one or two future first-round draft choices. One source told ESPN.com that the Mavericks and Nets were also discussing a separate trade that would send Antoine Wright to Dallas for a future second-round pick.

I guess we may have the Nets to thank for trouncing us on Sunday, surely that had some role in changing Mark Cuban’s mind on a trade he previously said was about as sensible as firing up the ol’ crack pipe. (see third paragraph, last line)
