A contract that pays $21.37 million ends once the season is over. But Jason Kidd doesn't want to go anywhere. "I would love to end my career here,'' he said. "We've got a chance to win.'' Mark Cuban doesn't hesitate when asked if that's a possibility. "Absolutely,'' the Mavericks owner said. "As long as he can play at the level he's at, I hope he stays on.'' Kidd turns 36 next month and would like to play three more seasons. He admires John Stockton and often talks about how effective the former Utah Jazz guard was late in his career. Stockton was 41 when he retired. Kidd wants to stay because he knows Cuban will always do what he can to make the team better. He's not interested in a one-year deal with the Mavericks or any other team. He wants a commitment. "You would like to have a team get behind you so you can give everything you have to that team,'' Kidd said. "I don't want to be a rent-a-player.''
