Whoa. Things got everything overnight.
After a rough start in the beginning of the 2013-2014 season, Jason Kidd led the Nets to the second round of the playoffs.
But now, Jason took a final jab at power when he requested a promotion to become the President Of Basketball Operations. Unfortunately for him, he was denied the request and has now entered into talks with the Bucks to become coach and President over there. The Bucks and Nets are in discussions to figure out a way to switch or kill Jason’s current contract.
You have to consider a few things. Jason was a player off the bench a few months before becoming the Nets’ coach and he had no coaching experience at any level. And the Nets gave him a $10.5 million 4-year deal. They took a chance with Jason and overlooked his off-court situations. But what might be bothering Jason is that Steve Kerr (Warriors) and Derek Fisher (Knicks), both new coaches without any previous coaching experience, both signed five-year deals worth $25 million each. Significantly higher than Jason’s contract.
Yikes. Let’s see how this ends as we don’t Jason staying with the Nets organization after all of these new revelations.
