Mark Jackson Could Replace Kidd As Nets Head Coach

Mark Jackson

The Nets are reportedly done with Jason Kidd, after he unsuccessfully tried to gain more power within the organization and has a more executive gig lined up with the Milwaukee Bucks.

That means Kidd will need to be replaced as head coach, and rather than go with a first-timer once again, Brooklyn appears to be considering candidates with far more experience.

Sources told on Saturday night that the name of former Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson has come up internally as a potential candidate to replace Kidd if he indeed leaves the Nets.

Jackson would be an interesting choice, considering the fact that he didn’t exactly leave the Warriors under the most favorable of circumstances.

In addition, NBA coaching sources say the Nets are also interested in veterans Lionel Hollins and George Karl.
