Pros and Cons of Jason Kidd Potentially Coaching Brooklyn Nets in 2013-14

Jason Kidd is wasting no time getting back into the NBA. After announcing his retirement in early June, he's already looking to land the head coaching gig with the Brooklyn Nets.

Kidd, who spent six-and-a-half years as the point guard for the Nets back when they were in New Jersey, is looking to skip all of that pesky assistant coaching business and jump straight to the head chair on the sidelines.

Per a report from Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski, Kidd is already looking to put together a team of assistants to help him adjust quickly, and his candidacy is being discussed by Brooklyn's bigwigs.

According to ESPN, Kidd will meet with Nets general manager Billy King this week to discuss the possibility of taking the job.

There would obviously be many concerns surrounding Kidd, especially because he just retired from playing the game a few days prior to throwing his hat into the ring.

However, is it possible that he would work out well for the Nets, possibly giving them a leg up on their crosstown rivals, the New York Knicks, and the rest of the Eastern Conference?

Kidd's positives may just outweigh the negatives, but we'll have to look at each before we can really decide whether or not he would be right for the Nets job.
