According to the New York Knicks, Jason Kidd will retire after 19 seasons in the NBA.
Grant Hill, who shared the rookie of the year honor with Kidd in 1995, also retired over the weekend.
That leaves just one player left in the league from the 1994 draft class -- Miami Heat veteran Juwan Howard. Howard is a year older than Lakers guard Steve Nash, but shares the same birthday.
Nash, born Feb. 7, 1974, is now the second-oldest player in the league, and with Kidd and Hill retiring (both 40), the oldest player under contract past the current season. Nash still has two more seasons on his deal with the Lakers for a total of $19 million.
In his first year with the Lakers, the veteran point guard struggled to stay healthy -- missing 32 regular season games (broken leg, hip, hamstring, nerve issues). By the postseason he just didn't have the strength to play and the Lakers were swept by the San Antonio Spurs.
