Jason Kidd is expected to return to the Nets lineup sometime between December 10-14.

"We should not expect Jason to save us," said Richard Jefferson, who averaged 22.8 points, 7.8 rebounds and shot .465 (33-of-71) on the Nets' 0-4 western trip that ran their losing streak to nine games and left them at 2-11, tying the worst 13-game start in franchise history.

"He's coming back from knee surgery and you don't want to put too much pressure on one guy," Jefferson continued. "We need to save ourselves. Jason should come in and contribute until he gets his legs underneath him.

Jefferson and his mate shouldn't plan on playing with one of the league's hottest commodities for very long, as Kidd's name has had constant placement on NBA rumor mill's since the summer.

Fred Kerber of the New York Post writes, 'If Kidd appears fine after his left-knee surgery, operators will be standing by waiting to take calls bidding for his services.'
----------------------------

So where will Kidd go? I'm betting on the Wolves, Rockets or Mavs at this point.

If the Nets had a sense of humor, they'd ship Kidd and his wife and kid to Atlanta for contracts expiring after the season. Screw him, he got the big money and then he wants to complain, why reward him. Bad enough for them that he demanded max money and GM powers to bring in Mourning. Either that, or hold onto Kidd until the summer 'I Demand a Trade' merry-go-round begins. Perhaps they can flip Kidd for a young star they can build around with Jefferson.
As for Jefferson, I know he got the money, but do you think he wonders if maybe he would have been better off playing through this season and taking a shot as a restricted free agent after the season? Ground isn't near being broken in Brooklyn, so it'll be a long time out of the playoffs, even in the ebola virus known as the Atlantic Division.
