Brooklyn Breakup

When Jason Kidd was named the Brooklyn Nets head coach in June 2013, he sounded ready to work toward an NBA title. "Championship teams are built on being prepared, playing unselfishly and being held accountable, and that's how I expect to coach this basketball team,” Kidd told ESPN at the time. Things didn’t really work out like that. On Monday, Brooklyn officially announced that Kidd was one and done with the Nets shipping him off to the Milwaukee Bucks in exchange for two second-round draft picks. Reportedly, Kidd purposely engaged the Nets front office in a power struggle by trying to allegedly supersede the team’s general manager Billy King, as a cover for a plotted exit from Brooklyn. That’s after billionaire owner Mikhail Prokhorov blessed Kidd with a nearly $200 million roster in his first and only year of coaching. All being said, Kidd’s sudden departure marks an opportunity to coach the Nets for arguably the most prideful city in the world. (Is Brooklyn in the house?) Here, BET.com names potential candidates to replace Kidd as head coach of the Brooklyn Nets.
