The Dallas point guard and his agent met Wednesday with Knicks president Donnie Walsh and coach Mike D’Antoni at Madison Square Garden. The Knicks are interested in Kidd, but plan to be cautious in free agency because they want to save salary cap space for the summer of 2010.
Walsh told reporters that no contract offer was made to Kidd, who is exploring his options. The Mavericks also are interested in keeping Kidd, who was a member of the U.S. team that won a gold medal at the Beijing Olympics.
The Knicks also have said they’d like to retain two of their own free agents, forward David Lee and guard Nate Robinson, if the prices are right.
