Report: Jason Kidd to Bucks For Two Draft Picks
Just over one year ago Jason Kidd was back where he "belonged:" with the Nets.
One year later, Kidd has exited Brooklyn just as fast as he entered.
According to reports, Kidd along with his coaching rights have been traded to Milwaukee in exchange for a 2015 and a 2019 second round picks.
It was reported over the weekend that Kidd attempted a power play with the Nets front office and tried to seek out full basketball control in a team president role. When he was denied, the Milwaukee Bucks asked for permission to interview Kidd for the head coaching job and was granted it, according to sources.
Kidd has a personal relationship with Bucks new co-owner Marc Lasry, who had been a financial adviser for Kidd during his playing career.
The jury is still out on Kidd the head coach, he led the Nets to a 44-38 record and won a playoff series against the Toronto Raptors in the Eastern Conference. However, his team featured star players and hall-of-fame players.
For Milwaukee, Larry Drew is a first year head coach and will be out of a job by the end of the week, sources say.
Drew finished with the worst record in the NBA, which led them in selecting Jabari Parker with the second overall pick in last week's draft.
Lionel Hollins, George Karl and Brooklyn native Mark Jackson are all being considered by the Nets,
