Freshly retired NBA star Jason Kidd is pursuing the Brooklyn Nets' head coaching job and his candidacy has been discussed within the highest levels of the organization, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Kidd has been talking with associates about the possibility of making the immediate leap from a Hall of Fame playing career to a head coaching job, and has been working to identify a staff of assistant coaches who could help him overcome the significant learning curve, sources said.

The Nets have considered Indiana Pacers associate head coach Brian Shaw as their top target for the vacancy, but are competing with the Los Angeles Clippers and Denver Nuggets to secure him.

Kidd still has strong ties within the Nets' organization that he revived with consecutive NBA Finals appearances (2002 and '03). After 19 seasons in the league, Kidd retired last week after one season with the New York Knicks.

Before Kidd signed a free-agent deal with the Knicks, he considered re-joining the Nets as a backup to star point guard Deron Williams. Kidd and Williams have a strong relationship and share an agent.

Kidd retired as a 10-time All-Star, and second behind John Stockton in career assists and steals. He's considered one of the most intelligent players in the sports' history.

he probably has 1 of the highest bball IQs in the game. hes top 3 in assists and steals. im pretty sure he has alot to teach on both offense and defense. just not sure hes ready to be a head coach right away. speaking on behalf of all nets fans it would be ideal to have shaw as head coach and jkidd as assistant. seems like a long shot tho.

So does Steve Nash... I would not chance him on being my coach though because there is a ton more to basketball and just because a player plays the game does not make him smart at every area and that is needed at coaching. I wouldnt even sniff him a chance if I were the Nets.

lol, this is an asinine statement. Kidd's IQ is very easy to point out of both ends of the floor. And its not because of certain stats he puts up. He has been touted by the hundreds of players and dozens of coaches he has played with/under. Everyone who has ever played with the guy says hes the best leader and a coach on the floor. Sounds familiar to Mark Jackson and everyone said he needed to be an assistant first?

I mean did you really say earlier in this thread he doesn't have a high IQ because he can't shoot? Really?

And mark Jackson's coaching experience was ?????

Basketball is a different sport. Jkidds bball iq is very high he knows the game and was the coach on the floor for the Knicks playing SG. He was the voice of reason at times

As long as he surrounds him self with good assistants like Jackson did with Mike Malone kidd would be fine

The guy was in a DWI accident less than a year ago, and you're going to make him the first guy to end his career, without ever having been an official player-coach, and go directly to coaching? I don't think so.

How does a DWI have anything to do with coaching ability?

@More-Than-Most : I agree with you that, he's probably not going to get this job, but it's inarguable that he is one of the most intelligent players to play the game. Look at what happened to Melo, JR and Felton this season. Decision making improved greatly on each of them. He's respected by coaches, players, rivals and analysts alike. With that much credibility, you can't say he doesn't know his game. Kidd's bball IQ is better than Jordan's. He'd definitely be one of the top assistant coaches in the league, hoping the Knicks sign him to that at least.

Because there aren't really any proven coaches that seem interested in the Brooklyn job. If you read my above comment before addressing your opinion, you would have seen I said he should become a AC first. He has the right tools to become a head coach, just needs the coaching experience.

don't get it for kid or the nets. it would be a hail mary for the nets which could work out either way. for kidd, he needs to take a year off, figure out what he really wants, then be an analyst for a couple years then pursue coaching. that's the mark jackson route, and i think a preferable one. either that or sit on the knicks bench next year and keep coaching the knicks, then take em over when woody is done.

Why would Kidd choose to be an assistant for the Knicks? Under a coach he probably doesnt respect and has no history with?

Don't even know how to respond to this hahaha. Weird, confused, huh?

I think Billy King will end up offering him some sort of assistant position though - something i would be VERY happy about. He'll be able to teach Dwill his trade and help out the team offensively and help develop Tyshawn Taylor (who right now is our back-up PG because CJ Watson is planning on opting out according to recent sources).

06-09-2013, 08:17 PM
A coach that can actually play with you in practice, haha.

It would be interesting to see an immediate turnaround like that, but I really hope he just gets a hand in assisting the Knicks. At least for the upcoming season. Then he'll go work with Mark Jackson which would be epic.

I think it would be a better idea if the Nets were rebuilding but I like Jason Kidd for a head coaching job, he is the smartest basketball player over the last 10-15 years and has a great basketball IQ that will help him coach. Most PG's make great coaches look at River, CHeeks, Hunter, and the list keeps going.

Agreed, but not immediately after retiring. Let him relax, observe the game from an outsider's perspective for a bit. If he wants, give him an assistant position. But not the damn head coach immediately. I don't think he understands how stressful it would be to take over Brooklyn right now, especially with expectations increased now that we've already gotten to the playoffs. It's 2nd round or bust from here on out.

If Kidd feels he is capable then I would let him have at it. He just finished a season playing for the Knicks at 40 years old. I would never doubt this guy. Nobody knows the game better than Jason Kidd. Only 2 players in sports I would do this for is Kidd and Peyton Manning. Like I said Mark Jackson is proving prior coaching experience is not necessary when you basically have been a player/coach your entire career.

I was referring more to the fact that he would be leaving the Knicks and going straight across town to coach the little brother.


I understand his connection to the team, but even excluding strategical advantages against the Knicks because of the fact that he knows Woodson and the team inside and out, it just leaves a little bit of a sour taste in my mouth. Not saying I would hate him, but it makes me a little uneasy.

I've been noticing that as well. Not just on netsdaily though. I follow him on twitter and all he's been doing is tweeting quotes from other players/coaches saying he would be a good coach. I mean of course would eventually - he has an incredibly high basketball IQ, but this early??

I am literally the exact same feelings as well. My first thought was cracking up that Kidd was even thining about being the HEAD coach but it seems like this is what's going to happen. Unless Shaw impresses in the interview (and he actually wants to coach us more than the Clippers), then I see Kidd being our coach.

If this was the Nets of old (hell even before this season),I would've been ecstatic, but our expectations are much higher now and I hope he can fulfill them if given the position. It all depends on what kind of assistant coach lineup he can find for himself. King and rest of Net FO are requiring experienced coaches which Lawrence Frank might provide, but hope we get more. Dream scenario would be Shaw Head Coach, Kidd as assistant.

I sat on this and thought about the negatives on Sunday, now having 2 days to process and think about this. It's a tough gutsy move. IDK if he can do it cuz' this is a more grueling job than being a player. Ask any former player coach and they'll tell you coaching players is the toughest thing to do.

I will now add some pros. The pros of Jason Kidd as a coach is knowledge. There were many times I heard the Knicks players saying how Jason Kidd was the calming force on that floor. He gave Melo confidence, he certainly helped Ray Ray, and was very helpful to JR and Cope.

The Boston Celtics said the most dangerous thing about playing Kidd is his mind, cuz he's always a step ahead of you. IDK if this works but there's one pro.

Who cares if Jason Kidd was a great player on the court. Doesnt mean squat as a coach. May even mean he's a bad head out as other great players have been.

Isaiah Thomas was a great player, how's his post retirement career look as a coach/executive?

I like Kidd and think he's gonna be a solid coach, but to argue that he was a great player which automatically makes him a great coach is just down right stupid. To go even further and say he's a better coach than anyone at this point is just laughable. How about he coaches a single game before we say he's better than Woody or anyone else at this point for that matter.

I think Kidd will be an outstanding coach but I'm interested to add rotations and his mins distribution. Also if the talent isn't there can't expect to much. The east will be tougher next year

Kidd has been in this game for 20 years he knows different systems he will win COY and win 60+ games with this team. You can keep hating all you want. Jason Kidd is going to be the next Phil Jackson.

So excited Kidd is coming home.

Agreed, Kidd is going to be an outstanding coach for them. For me personally, he is a much better option than the COY Karl and the man who led his team to the most wins in team history. Without having watched him try to attempt to coach one game I would already put him in the Top 5 coaches of all time, slightly behind Poppovich, but after he wins 72 games this season and wins multiple titles he will become the best to ever do it!

Wow their going to hire Jason Kidd right after he retired? Has that ever happened before?

And their passing on Shaw, Karl, Hollins, Joerger etc for him? Wow. I mean he could still turn out to be a good HC but he just retired from PLAYING and only Mark Jackson and Doc Rivers have turned out well to become good HCs without any experience. And even then Rivers & Jackson took time off after they retired to learn more about basketball coaching, etc.

His concepts and his 20 + years in the NBA make him the best. That beats any coach on the market or in the nBA. who has gone through what Kidd has gone through?

And Jason Kidd only wants to coach the Nets that is what is cool, if this was never an offer he would be on the Knicks right now for another 2 years. He wants to coach the Nets and only the Nets.

DoMeFavors only represents the terribly, biased opinions of himself. He doesn't even represent the Nets homers like wavey. DMF is in his own class. Don't compliment him by calling him a Nets homer.

"My first thought was cracking up that Kidd was even thining about being the HEAD coach but it seems like this is what's going to happen. Unless Shaw impresses in the interview (and he actually wants to coach us more than the Clippers), then I see Kidd being our coach.

If this was the Nets of old (hell even before this season),I would've been ecstatic, but our expectations are much higher now and I hope he can fulfill them if given the position. It all depends on what kind of assistant coach lineup he can find for himself. King and rest of Net FO are requiring experienced coaches which Lawrence Frank might provide, but hope we get more. Dream scenario would be Shaw Head Coach, Kidd as assistant."

bumping my own post haha, got hidden under all the domefavors rant. Leaning more towards "excitement" now that it's becoming more and more likely.

One thing is FOR SURE though. It will be very hard for me to talk #*& about Kidd as I have repeatedly about Avery and PJC hahaha. On netsdaily.com, every thread would mention #FIREAVERY and later #FIREPJC after every game haha. Gonna be interesting to check out those threads after the first few bad games haha. I'm sure other Nets fans would agree.

You're multi-delusional, I'll give you that. Kidd has spousal abuse in his past and an accident while DWI still in his present. He does not deserve to be a coach and I'd be royally p---d if he was hired. Nets could go to h--l.

Saying he's the best coach available and one of the greatest basketball minds in history is just so damn sick it sets a new level of stupidity and it's insulting to SOOOO many people that it's beyond comprehension. I just hope and pray you're not from Brooklyn.

Like they would have drafted Lillard at 6 if they had it :rolleyes:

Who is your team? The Jazz? Why did you guys trade away Dominique Wilkins? We can do this all day.

They had no Money to pay Dominique Wilkins because this was before the salary cap and they were dirt poor. Could've had Favors , Kanter and Lillard all on the same team if only your FO was patient. But their impatience will be their downfall.

Do you even know what the word jealous means, because it doesn’t seem like it with this post.

I don’t think any fan would want a head coach with zero experience if they expect to challenge in the playoffs. I guess you don’t have high hopes for the Nets next year.
