New York Knicks guard Jason Kidd has retired after 19 years in the NBA.
He’s leaving money on the table.
Kidd still had two years on his contract, but after a disappointing playoffs where he looked overmatched against younger opponents, he has decided to hang it up.
Here’s his statement (via Alan Hahn):
“My time in professional basketball has been an incredible journey, but one that must come to an end after 19 years. 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 and every one of my teammates and coaches that joined me on the court.”
