Mavs Finally Score Jason Kidd, Jersey Number Questions Ensue

from ESPN: Well, it seems that Jason Kidd will finally re-join the Dallas Mavericks after several snags in last week’s proposed trade with the New Jersey Nets.  According to Marc Stein’s report, the version of the deal that actually went through will end up costing the Mavs $11 million more than the original proposal.  Oops. Let’s hope it’s worth it. Now that this whole thing is over, I wonder what jersey number J-Kidd will wear, as his favorite “5” has been used by Josh Howard since he came into the league.  Juwan Howard, another long-time number 5, was forced to change to “55” when he came back to the Mavs this year.  Any one wanna venture any guesses what will happen here?

[Trade] details: Kidd, forward Malik Allen and swingman Antoine Wright sent to Dallas for 24-year-old point guard Devin Harris, center DeSagana Diop, swingman Trenton Hassell, guard Maurice Ager, Van Horn via sign-and-trade, first-round draft picks this June and in 2010 and $3 million in cash. The teams originally planned to move Wright to Dallas in a separate transaction but were able to make the salary-cap math work in a single trade after the deal was reconfigured over the weekend.
