The Brooklyn Nets will be moving forward without head coach Jason Kidd after his failed power play to gain the president of basketball operations role.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Charles Gardner, ESPN's Marc Stein and Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski all reported that Kidd will join the Milwaukee Bucks. The Nets' compensation will be two second-round picks.
While Kidd was vying for a dual role with the Bucks as coach and team president, he'll only be tabbed as the former in Milwaukee, according to Bleacher Report's Howard Beck.
So now that Kidd's brazen attempt to gain more power within Brooklyn's organization has failed, where do the Nets go from here?
They'll join the Los Angeles Lakers as the only other NBA team without a man tabbed to patrol the sideline in 2014-15. Key names like Lionel Hollins and Brooklyn native Mark Jackson have already entered the fray, but are they viewed as the top candidates for the vacant position?
Brooklyn must target the most capable coaches on the market. Guys with winning resumes are a must, because the Nets have an expensive roster that has no choice but to win now.
