Re: Will Bucks get Jason Kidd?
Bucks general manager John Hammond has two years remaining on his contract, as does coach Larry Drew, creating an awkward situation for two principal figures in the organization with all the talk about Kidd swirling.
Kidd led the Nets to a 44-38 record in his lone season as coach after retiring from a storied 19-year pro career. Brooklyn, led by veterans Paul Pierce, Joe Johnson and Kevin Garnett, prevailed in a first-round series against Toronto before losing in the second round to the Miami Heat.
Kidd, who has no previous front-office experience, reportedly wanted more control in Brooklyn although the team had a general manager in Billy King.
