Jason Kidd signed as the new coach of the Brooklyn Nets


By James Williams

Former NBA player Jason Kidd signed as the new coach of the Brooklyn Nets on June 12th.

The Nets and Kidd agree to a 3-year deal,  making him the 18th head coach in the franchise’s history.

Kidd returns as a member of the Nets organization for the first time since 2008.

As a player with the Nets, Kidd led the team to the only two NBA Finals appearances in franchise history but were unable to win a title both times.

Kidd recently won his first and only NBA championship as a member of the Dallas Mavericks in 2011 against the Miami Heat.

After his rookie season, he was named the 1995 Co-Rookie of the Year with Grant Hill.

Last week, Kidd retired as a player after 19 NBA seasons. 

Kidd will now switch his attention to coaching the Nets, that has young talent and one of the best point guard, Deron Williams.

Brian Shaw was one of the other candidates for the head coaching job but did not get chosen after a five-hour interview with the Nets earlier this evening.
