Denied promotion, Jason Kidd gets OK to talk with Bucks

Apparently Jason Kidd isn’t satisfied with just coaching, but he’ll have to be if he stays with the Nets.
According to a league source, Kidd recently approached ownership with a series of demands, including the role of overseeing the Nets’ basketball operations department in addition to his head coaching responsibilities. The source said Kidd didn’t want general manager Billy King to be dismissed, but wanted to be given a title and placed above him in the organizational hierarchy.


Ownership declined to grant Kidd that kind of power, which is rare for any coach in the league to have.
The franchise then was asked by the Bucks for permission to speak with Kidd about the prospect of hiring him, and the Nets allowed them to do so.
