Jason Kidd's next court date will be in court, not on one.

Southhampton Town Police

Next Thursday, Jason Kidd will face cameras again, except this time, he's likely to be more nervous than he was at Barclays Center this Thursday.

Kidd will finally appear in Suffolk County Court in Southhampton to answer charges that he was driving under the influence when he wrapped his SUV around a utility pole in the early morning hours of July 15, just a week after he signed his Knicks contract. The case could be postponed, with one report saying it was more likely to scheduled for July 11, which coincidentally is the first day free agents can be signed.

The Nets are well aware of the court case and spoke to Kidd at length regarding it during his interview Monday, both Kidd and Billy King said.

"Billy and them did all their homework, believe me," Kidd said.

Said King: "We talked about everything. Yeah, we did. I won’t go too far because it’s a legal matter. But we talked about it and I feel comfortable about where things stand. I spoke to his attorney (Edward Burke Jr.)."So it’s a legal matter and it’ll be resolved, and I’ll address whatever happens after that."

Kidd, who refused to take a breathalyzer test that morning, has pleaded not guilty to the charge, which can result in jail time of up to one year.
