According to Marc Stein of ESPN, Kidd has agreed to join forces with the Knicks in the Big Apple. Although Kidd and all NBA free agents could not sign until July 11, Kidd had decided he would join New York all the same.
With Baron Davis and Jeremy Lin sidelined due to injury last season, it was important for New York to seek a PG threat in free agency. Kidd has started at the position in each of his 18 years in the league, won an NBA title and has a chance to help this talented team compete.
Rest assured, Knicks fans are looking forward to next season following Kidd's decision.
These are the seven reasons why the addition of Kidd has placed the Knicks in championship contention.
