The Nets will meet with Brian Shaw today to discuss the team's head coaching vacancy, but all signs at the moment are pointing to Jason Kidd becoming Brooklyn's new head coach. Fred Kerber of the New York Post reports that the Nets have the parameters of a three-year deal in place to offer Kidd. While the offer hasn't been formally extended, "the Russians are on board," a source tells Kerber, referring to the club's owners.
Kidd and Shaw appear to be the only two candidates still standing for the Nets' opening, despite earlier reports of interest in Lionel Hollins and several others. Just a week after announcing his retirement as a player, Kidd met with the Nets on Monday and impressed upon management that he "really wants this," according to Kerber.
When I asked yesterday whether the Nets should hire Kidd, more than half of you voted in favor of Brooklyn opting for the longtime point guard over a more experienced coaching candidate.
