Jason Kidd gets traded to the same team that drafted him in 1994 and Roger Clemens testifies in front of Congress. See what else happened!

Jason Kidd a Maverick Again

Jason Kidd got his wish on Wednesday, when the New Jersey Nets traded the nine-time NBA All Star to the Dallas Mavericks for Devin Harris, Jerry Stackhouse, DeSagana Diop, Devean George and draft picks. Only a few weeks before, Kidd had made it public that he wanted out of New Jersey because they were struggling. However, as of Thursday, the trade is not finalized because Devean George blocked the trade - due to a clause in his contract which gave him the right to do so. George is expected to okay the trade which will reunite Kidd with the team that drafted him and where he spent his first two and a half seasons as a pro.

Did Belichick Cheat Before?

Earlier in the 2007 NFL season, New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick was busted for spying on an opposing coach during the game by videotaping him. The scandal known as spygate had opened up an investigation into Belichick. The head of the investigation Senator Arlen Specter revealed on Wednesday that NFL commissioner Roger Goodwell told him that Belichick had been taping opposing coaches since the year 2000. Goodwell also said Belichick told him he thought the taping was legal.

Clemons Denies Steroid Use

On Wednesday, former MLB pitching great Roger Clemens answered questions in front of Congress about his alleged steroid use. Just like he has done in media since the allegations were made public in December, Clemens has denied ever taking any performance-enhancing drugs. His former trainer Brian McNamee was also present at the hearing and also testified. McNamee claimed Clemens did take performance-enhancing drugs. He said he knew this because he helped inject them into Clemens. If either McNamee or Clemens is found to be lying to Congress, they could each receive a five-year sentence in prison.
