Jason Kidd reportedly wants Brooklyn Nets coaching job
According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, Kidd had let the Brooklyn Nets know that he is interested in their head coaching vacancy. Wojnarowski says the possibility of hiring Kidd has been discussed within the organization.
Kidd played with the Nets organization from 2001-2008, which were some of his peak career years. He helped lead the franchise to back-to-back NBA Finals appearances in 2002 and 2003.
Since Kidd does not have head coaching experience, the former point guard reportedly is working to assemble a staff of assistants who could help him.
Kidd has long been considered one of the smartest and savviest players in the game, so a transition to coaching would seem natural. In interviews after announcing his retirement last week, Kidd said he was interested in coaching.
