Jason Kidd Expected to Coach Milwaukee Bucks

The Nets and Bucks agreed Monday on a compensation package for Jason Kidd to leave Brooklyn and become the head coach in Milwaukee, league sources told CBSSports.com.

The Nets get their own 2015 second-round pick, which Milwaukee owned, and the Bucks’ 2019 second-round pick in return for letting Kidd out of his four-year, $10.5 million contract after only one season, sources said.

It is not clear whether Kidd will agree to a new contract or the Bucks will inherit his existing deal with Brooklyn. At least for now, Kidd is being hired as head coach and the deal has not affected the status of general manager John Hammond or asssitant GM David Morway, a person familiar with the new ownership group’s plans told CBSSports.com.

But Kidd’s goals in pulling this power play were clear. In recent weeks, he had pushed for full personnel control and a president title with the Nets after only one 44-win season as coach. That request culminated in the past 24-48 hours with the Nets’ Russian ownership group, led by Mikhail Prokhorov, rejecting the future Hall of Fame point guard’s quest for more power.
