Mark Cuban and his Dallas Mavericks are pursuing free agents Steve Nash and Jeremy Lin now that his team lost the Deron Williams sweepstakes to Jay-Z and the Brooklyn Nets, according to ESPN's Marc Stein in a report from ESPN Dallas:

The Dallas Mavericks' point guard priorities are now shifting to 39-year-old and former Mav Steve Nash and one-time Mavs Summer League hand Jeremy Lin, sources told ESPN.com's Marc Stein.

Sources say the Mavs will pursue Nash and the New York Knicks' Lin, who is a restricted free agent. As such, the Knicks can match any offer made to Lin.

Nash is only a year younger than Kidd and can still be among the best starting point guards in the league. It's unclear whether Kidd will stay in Dallas as a back-up or look elsewhere, perhaps to Brooklyn to be with his old franchise in a new city. The report also noted that Ric Bucher of ESPN The Magazine was told by a source that Kidd is deciding between staying in Dallas and moving to New York to play for the Knicks.
