Jason Kidd Will Coach in Orlando Summer League

by June 15, 2013

While assistant coaches generally take the sidelines in summer league, Nets skipper Jason Kidd will coach at the Orlando Summer League next month. It makes a lot of sense for the Kidd to start gaining experience. More from Newsday: “Kidd said Friday that he plans on coaching the Nets’ summer league team in Orlando next month, hoping to use it as a learning tool as he dives headfirst into the next chapter of his career. ‘I think it’s the best thing to get right into it,’ Kidd said on ESPN Radio. ‘I know that a lot of times head coaches don’t coach summer league. But this gives me time to work on different parts of the game, learning to be a coach, also my philosophy and plays and the defensive stuff that I’ll get to put in as my system. So, I get to see if it works. If it doesn’t work, [then see] what changes I have to make and work from there.'”
