Knicks rumors: Jason Kidd expected to return

Jason Kidd doesn’t resemble the player he was in his prime, as the 40-year-old was scoreless over his final 10 games of the season. Still, the New York Knicks are expecting him to return next season, and general manager Glen Grunwald believes he’ll be a “big contributor,” according to Ian Begley of ESPN New York.

"We had a great meeting with Jason yesterday. We hope he's going to be back and from his comments to us we expect him to be back next year and he'll be a big contributor to the team like he was this year," Grunwald said on ESPN New York 98.7 FM on Tuesday after meeting with Kidd.
While Kidd was influential in New York’s regular-season success, he struggled mightily during the playoffs. It seemed like the team was down a man when he was playing, and he missed his final 18 shots of the year.

Kidd appeared to be mulling a return during the year, but he is under contract for the 2013-14 campaign. He’s since indicated that he’ll be back with the Knicks, but this can always change over the offseason.
