Brooklyn Nets head coach Jason Kidd seems headed for the door after reportedly falling short in a power struggle for more say over the team.
Kidd reportedly asked ownership for a role overseeing the basketball operations side of the team, according to The New York Post, who first reported on the negotiations Saturday. When the Nets said no, citing concerns Kidd had yet to prove himself after one ho-hum season, the Milwaukee Bucks asked for permission to speak with Kidd about poaching him away.
What was mere speculation Saturday turned into apparent certainty overnight. The Bucks are already discussing compensation should they take Kidd, who has three years remaining on his contract with Brooklyn. And the Nets have reportedly discussed former Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson as a possible replacement.
