Jason Kidd has announced his retirement from the NBA.
Kidd was the second overall pick out of California by the Dallas Mavericks in 1994.
Kidd was a 10-time All-Star and co-Rookie of the Year in 1995.
Kidd had multiple stints with the Mavericks, culminating in a title in 2011 when he had evolved into a more complementary piece. Kidd also led the Nets to multiple appearances in The Finals.
The New York Knicks had Kidd signed at $3.09 million for each of the 13-14 and 14-15 seasons.
“My time in professional basketball has been an incredible journey, but one that must come to an end after 19 years,” Kidd said. “As I reflect on my time with the four teams I represented in the NBA, I look back fondly at every season and thank each every one of my teammates and coaches that joined me on the court.”
