Best Free-Agent Point Guard Options for NY Knicks to Replace Jason Kidd

Like a college freshman at Kentucky positioning himself for the NBA draft, it was one-and-done for Jason Kidd with the New York Knicks.

Those outside the Big Apple are quick to point out that Kidd is on the wrong side of 40 and was held scoreless in the last 10 games of his career. Nonetheless, he was a key piece of the team that won 54 games.

The leadership he brought to the locker room was easily his most valued asset, but his three-point shooting prior to the playoffs (35.1) and ability to play on or off the ball facilitated the advancement of New York's dynamic offensive attack.

More than a month into free agency, the Knicks have yet to find his replacement. Not for want of trying, though. They've been linked to just about every free-agent guard out there.

Problem is, they can't offer anything other than the minimum allowed. Compounded by their reluctance to hand out more than a one- or two-year deal (2015 all everything) and the waning crop of talent on the open market, finding the right fit is difficult.

But it's not impossible.
