4th SW Quadrant\The Approval Matrix: Week of February 11, 2008
By Rotowire 1/27/2008
The agent for Kidd (sprained right thumb) has asked Nets president Rod Thorn to trade his client to a contender before next month's trade deadline [February 22, 2008], according to several league officials, the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Thorn would not comment about the trade request, but it may be hard for him to get equal value for Kidd. "Right now things are going very poorly for us," Thorn said, without specifically addressing the Kidd conundrum. "Historically, those are the times when you don't get offered what you might consider fair deals. And sometimes you feel that maybe you should do something to do something, but those are the times you have to be very cognizant and careful about what the results of your actions might be."
