But Kidd was often scorched by younger and quicker players, and his 12-game stretch of playing heavy minutes included an 0-for-5 shooting night against the Bulls and an 0-for-6 night against the Blazers — both losses.
Kidd is clearly more comfortable at this stage of his career playing off the ball as a spot up shooter (of his 269 shots this season, 205 have been 3-pointers), and Prigioni shares a similar problem with Kidd — he is too slow to keep up with opposing PGs on defense.
So if the Knicks make a deal before next Thursday’s deadline, expect it to be for a backup point guard.
Personally, I feel the best fit for their team would be Will Bynum of the Detroit Pistons, who I have maintained is the Player Most Likely to be Traded before the Feb. 21 deadline. But that’s just me.
