In perhaps the most unusual story of the 2014 off-season so far, the Brooklyn Nets gave permission to the Milwaukee Bucks to interview their head coach, Jason Kidd.

On Saturday, it was revealed Kidd wanted more control of the Nets and the front office was not willing to give him that power after one season. Now, Kidd will become the head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks for two second round picks according to ESPN’s Chris Broussard:

Despite a poor start to last season, Kidd was able to lead the Nets into the playoffs where they eventually lost to the Miami Heat in the Eastern conference semi-finals. With the Nets needing a new coach, there are four main candidates according to ESPN’s Marc Stein:

With that being said, Lionel Hollins still remains the front runner for the vacant coaching position. While Hollins is in the running for the Los Angeles Lakers’ job, it appears the team is leaning toward hiring Byron Scott after multiple interviews.

    Bosh is not worth 15-16 Million a year Maybe 8-9 Million he just shot himself on the foot LOL he is not worth it. Period.

    • Adriel Cherreguine

      LOL, he just making a lot of money for himself. Maybe 9 would be much for him, I think 8 will do. But I will instead get Pau than him.

  • TheTruthKills

    One of the weirdest things I’ve ever seen. I guess Kidd wanted all of the power in Brooklyn and no one budged. I guess Hollins will be their next coach.

  • vdogg

    wow, that was fast. i guess the lakers are going to lose out on hollins now.

    • http://www.foxhilldesign.com Josh

      What makes you think the Lakers want Hollins? Did he even get a second interview?

      • vdogg

        they said on TWC yesterday that he was the second favorite for the job.

        • http://www.foxhilldesign.com Josh

          According to the Lakers or someone else? Because I’m pretty sure BScott is the only person they have serious interest in so far.

          • Ralph

            I’m pretty sure the Lakers would have already hired BScott if they wanted him.

          • comrade24

            They’re waiting on FA to hire a coach. will most likely be Scott unless Melo or Lebron says “I’ll come to LA if _____ coaches”

          • courtney harris

            Could be discussing future plans and ass coaches. Lakers have been vey quiet in that front.

          • LegendInMyMind

            “Ass coaches”…

          • LegendInMyMind

            They should’ve expanded their interviews to assistants in the NBA ranks and also the collegiate and Euroleague ranks. I’m sick of these retread coaching hires. Why did they never interview Ettore Messina?

          • http://www.foxhilldesign.com Josh

            They said pretty clearly they want someone with NBA coaching experience. The NBA game (and coaching responsibilities) are so different than college and international leagues.

          • LegendInMyMind

            Which Messina has, actually. He’s a former Lakers assistant. And he’s someone who Kobe apparently likes. He’ll also reportedly be in consideration for the Knicks job. “NBA experience” counts for dick all when these guys are fizzled out. At least Lionel Hollins was on the rise before being shit-canned.

    • LegendInMyMind

      Yup.

  • socali

    I don’t think J.Kidd is that nice as a coach anyways. If Milwaukee makes the playoffs, ill be somewhat impressed but come on.

  • Badazztj12

    Well there goes Hollins, but don’t you guys think that Randle can play be a pf/sf? He is like a younger Lamer Odom with same ball handling skills. He has the speed to keep up with fast sf’s since he is young. When we put him at sf, he could still be in the paint but have a stretch 4 play on the outside to give him space to work in the low/high post

    • vdogg

      i personally do not. i think he is a natural PF, a true PF. you know, like tim duncan is not.

      • Badazztj12

        You saying that because he can play C?(tim)

        • vdogg

          yes. in fact, timmy’s skill are far more C than PF.

          • vdogg

            skills*

      • comrade24

        agreed about both. Can’t see Randle playing SF, and Timmy really is more of a natural center. I think he got stuck in that role from his rookie year playing with Robinson and just never left the PF position.

    • Frank

      I don’t think Julius Randle is like Lamar Odom at all.Julius Randle is a lot more like a young David Robinson if you watch their game you will understand that.Both big lefties that love to play in the low block.And both the Admiral David Robinson and Julius Randle are relentless rebounders.As for Lamar Odom he was a Scottie Pippen type Point Forward and he had great handles and good playmaking ability also he could pull up on anyone and knock down a 3 pointer.Julius is more of a low post player like Zach Randolph and The Admiral David Robinson.Both Julius and Lamar great players in there own way.

      • Badazztj12

        I still think that he can play SF because of his quickness and can cause mismatch problems. Look at Durant in college he was playing SG and in the NBA he became a SF/PF because of his quickness and could case mismatch problems with his shooting. I can see Randle bullying smaller SF’s in the low/high post and can hit the mid/3pt jump shot on taller PF’s but has to improve on that

        • Adriel Cherreguine

          I think his a bit of a low post guy who can take the mid-range jumpshots. I mean he`s well known for that during his lone year in Kentucky. Could we say a good Face Up equipped with lots of arsenal. I wish he won`t ended up like what happened to Anthony Bennet. But one thing is for sure, he`ll definitely learn from the BEST.

          • Badazztj12

            Well at Kentucky, the system Coach K used was meant for randle to low/high post and drive from the 3pt line. In his workout with us, you can see that he can shoot but the system didn’t allow him to do that and he is a good FT shooter. He has a smooth stroke. The reason he got lots of turnovers because the system also allowed little spacing for him to work, so he had to be quick to moves and spots. In the NBA, he will get his time.

        • Frank

          Well i watched his near 5 minute workout video that Lakers Nation released to the public and look to me like the Lakers brass was testing out his perimeter skills and he was taking and making jump shots in the video of course he was wide open with no hands up in his face.

          The reason i make the Admiral David Robinson comparison with Julius Randle is they are both lefties that are big but quick on there feet and able to get on the low block left side and go to work on anyone.David Robinson had the skills of a guard and Julius Randle is a low post beast and he is best sticking with what works for him.

          But he will be a Power Forward and if he switches over to Small Forward then there is a chance he will not do well but i do remember James Worthy was a Power Forward at UNC and when he came to the Lakers he went on to be a all time great Small Forward his game was much more fluid than Julius Randle and he was quicker and much lighter in the weight department.Nobody ever asked Shaq to be a outside shooter or ballhandler.Play to the strengths of each player is my way of coaching a player.

          But i love Julius Randle as a Power Forward in the low post that’s his strength on the left side on the low block.Keep up the hard work Julius and keep working on that face up jumper.

          • Badazztj12

            I see what you mean on that face up jumper. Z-Bo has the same jump shot as Randle and if Randle can learn his leaning faceup pull jumper. That’s where he can do good over the taller PF’s. He already has the ball handling skills not to lose the ball while driving to the paint and has the strength muscle his way into the paint. Yea your right about that faceup jumper. I can put him ahead of Z-Bo because if he can learn how to do early in his career unlike Z-Bo did I can see it happening.

        • http://rantsofascorpio.wordpress.com/ Evan

          I think Durant was moved to forward due to his size and length (6’9″ with a 7’4″ wingspan).

          Randle is a post guy. From what I understand, his outside/midrange game is an uncertainty, and that’s sort of necessary to play the 3.

      • Lander Diaz

        i hope Randle turns out to be like Charles Barkley…

  • 3339

    Seriously what the hell are the Bucks thinking??? Give away 2 second round picks for this guy that was imo a laughing stock in his first year as a coach and cried like a kid (LOL) because he couldn’t get more power. He complained about L.Frank and got him fired because Kidd wanted more control on the staff.
    Nets got rid of their problem, can hire a better coach, and get 2 picks out of it. smh milwaukee

  • comrade24

    Poor Jabari. Kidd’s an egomaniac and a terrible coach. Also, why is this on Lakers nation?

    • 3339

      on Lakers nation b/c it could impact our coaching search

  • courtney harris

    What the hell is going on?? I like LH to the nets though. They have very fierce vet team & could use a doc rivers like coach who harps on defense and still manages to keep his guys fighting.

  • Jim Buss Fan Club

    No Lionel Hollins please stay with the Lakers oh wait he never was a Lakers coach oops my bad what i meant to say is we need Lionel Hollins as the Lakes coach.

  • Jim213

    Damn, a ‘what if’ moment if Kidd would’ve stuck around another year.

  • KB24

    If lbj,melo come to lakers, coach K…BTW,i think they should have traded kidd,dwill for 2 2nd rd picks, knight and henson MIL will have a big 3 of parker,anteto,d.will

  • Lakers4Life

    All we need is Jeff Van Gundy once we get LeBron. Gonne be a fun summer folks!
