According to reports, the Brooklyn Nets are taking this Jason Kidd as head coach thing seriously. Kidd met with the Nets’ brass on Monday, and they seem to like what they’re hearing. Per Yahoo! Sports: “Kidd has convinced Nets management of his seriousness of committing the time and energy necessary to move into a head coaching job within weeks of his retirement as a 10-time NBA All-Star point guard, league sources said. The Nets could make a decision within the next several days, and Kidd’s candidacy has been a consideration for the past two to three weeks, league sources said. Nets ownership has long been intrigued with making a star hire in the coaching spot, and Kidd’s history with the franchise and standing in the sport’s history makes him an even more attractive candidate. Kidd is competing with Indiana Pacers associate head coach Brian Shaw for the job now, sources said. Nets GM Billy King met with Kidd on Monday, and will interview Shaw on Wednesday.”
