Unrestricted free agent point guard Jason Kidd will meet with New York Knicks officials on the first day of the free agent courting period, with the Knicks hoping to bring in the veteran for a roughly $5.6 million mid-level exception.
The New York Daily News reports that Kidd will meet with Knicks president Donnie Walsh and coach Mike D'Antoni , follwing through on his comments from earlier this year that he would strongly consider signing with the Knicks.
The Daily News said the Knicks would probably offer a one-year deal to the 36-year-old Kidd, who still has a home in New York from his years playing for the New Jersey Nets. The story further states that the Dallas Mavericks could easily top the money the Knicks have at their disposal for an offer to Kidd, so there is a chance that the financial terms won't shake out.
If the Knicks can't reach a deal with Kidd, they are said to be interested in making an offer to Milwaukee Bucks restricted free agent Ramon Sessions.

The Charlotte Observer reports that there is a potential three-way trade brewing between the Bobcats, the Dallas Mavericks and the Oklahoma City Thunder. The deal would reportedly involve the Bobcats getting rid of Raymond Felton and backup C Nazr Mohammed, whose contract calls for roughly $13.3 million through the 2009-10 season.
"It wouldn't be fair for me to speculate on any rumors," Bobcats general manager Rod Higgins said, as quoted by the Observer. "In the NBA, you're constantly talking to other teams. It's impossible to know if any deal would happen."
Other reports have Sean May also involved in the trade, with all three Bobcats going to Dallas. The Mavericks would reportedly give up DeSagana Diop to Charlotte, while the Thunder would send Earl Watson to Charlotte and receive Jerry Stackhouse and a future second-round draft pick.
