Despite a successful coaching debut with the Brooklyn Nets, Jason Kidd may not be returning, says reports.
Apparently, the rookie coach asked the franchise to give him control over personnel, but ownership rejected his request. Now, the Nets have given the Milwaukee permission to discuss the potential hiring of Kidd, reports ESPN.
A source close to the situation said both teams have already begun discussing possible compensation to release Kidd from the final three years of his original four-year, $10.5 million contract.
“I don’t think Kidd will be back,” the source said.
If Kidd does leave, word is former Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson has come up in internal discussions as a potential candidate to replace him.
