The Brooklyn Nets are allowing Jason Kidd to speak with the Milwaukee Bucks about joining the organization as head of basketball operations and coach, the New York Post reported, citing a person familiar with the situation.
Kidd, who has coached the Nets for one season after a 19-year playing career, recently asked Nets ownership to promote him above General Manager Billy King, the newspaper reported, citing the person. His request was denied, the Post said.
Kidd, 41, led the Nets to a 44-38 record and a second-round loss in the playoffs to the Miami Heat.
The Bucks went 15-67 and selected Duke University forward Jabari Parker with the second pick in the National Basketball Association draft last week.
