Report: Kidd “strong frontrunner” for Nets job; Stan Van Gundy not sold on move

CoachE15:

Well, at least he wouldn’t have to move very far. Jason Kidd in the runnings for the Brooklyn Nets head coaching job. Although extremely qualified after an ungodly amount of years as a player in the NBA, I’m not sure Kidd is ready to coach a team, when he was in that same position just a year prior.

When it was first floated that Jason Kidd could step right off the floor into the role of head coach of the Brooklyn Nets, there was a whole lot of “are you sure about that?” Stan Van Gundy still feels that way (we’ll get to that later).

But the Nets are apparently getting very serious — the words “serious frontrunner” were used by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.

Nets ownership has told league associates that it wants a “fresh face,” as coach, and the hiring of Kidd would give them a star quality that comes with significant risk for a franchise with a mandate to compete for championships in the short term.

The Nets had long been rumored to be interested in Brian Shaw and they are going ahead with that interview, reports Marc Stein of ESPN.
