From NBA.com staff reports
The story that took the NBA by surprise over the weekend — Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd working his way into an interview for a job with the Milwaukee Bucks — is seemingly a done deal. Kidd, who tried to power his way into the Nets’ GM gig, only to be rebuffed by team ownership, will become the Bucks’ new coach. As part of the deal, the Bucks will send the Nets two future second-round picks (2015 and ’19).
He will replace last season’s coach, Larry Drew, who went 15-67 in his first season in Milwaukee and has two seasons left on his current deal.
ESPN.com’s Marc Stein first tweeted the news of the deal, and other outlets followed suit via Twitter (see below).
Stein, Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski, CBSSports.com’s Ken Berger and Charles F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel all have fully detailed reports on the move as well.
