After a failed power play in Brooklyn, Kidd now has the task of leading what has to be considered one of the most unstable organizations in professional sports.
Kidd will apparently receive a hefty pay raise, something that he seemed to want after the likes of Steve Kerr and Derek Fisher received more money on deals to coach the Golden State Warriors and New York Knicks respectively.
Kidd’s success in his only season as the Nets coach was limited to finishing six games over .500 and defeating the Toronto Raptors in the first round of the playoffs.
For the Nets, they will now turn their attention to top-tier college coaches and veterans with NBA head coaching experience.
