On John Thompson's radio show, Rod Thorn said that he "thought we were pretty close at one time" to trading Jason Kidd at the trade deadline, but looking back, "I guess we weren't." He said that there was a deal that he would have pulled the trigger on if the Nets were getting a "young, big player with potential" (someone like Andrew Bynum perhaps?) in return. In the same interview, Thorn said that Kidd is basically irreplaceable and that the Nets never got very close to trading Vince Carter last week.
