Dallas Mavericks Reportedly Hiring Jason Kidd, Nico Harrison

The Dallas Mavericks have had an eventful offseason, but they’re about to begin filling the gaps.

According to Shams Charania, the Dallas Mavericks have agreements in place to hire Jason Kidd as head coach and Nico Harrison as general manager and president of basketball operations.

This will be Jason Kidd’s third time as head coach of an NBA franchise. Kidd coached the Brooklyn Net for one season in 2013-14 and the Milwaukee Bucks for four seasons from 2014-18, holding a career record of 183-190. Kidd has served as an assistant coach for the Los Angeles Lakers for the past two seasons.

Nico Harrison will come to Dallas after serving as Nike’s vice president of basketball operations, a role he has had since 2015.

Both of these jobs became vacant after the former head coach Rick Carlisle and general manager Donnie Nelson left their positions following the Mavs’ first-round playoff exit to the Los Angeles Clippers.
