New York • The New York Knicks say Jason Kidd has decided to retire from the NBA after 19 seasons.

Kidd is one of the greatest point guards in league history but struggled in the playoffs shortly after turning 40. He had two years left on the deal he signed last summer.

Kidd won an NBA title and two Olympic gold medals and is second on the career list in assists and steals. He was a 10-time All-Star.

His retirement Monday comes two days after fellow 40-year-old Grant Hill, with whom Kidd shared Rookie of the Year honors in 1995, announced his retirement.
