NEW YORK -- A person with knowledge of the details says the Bucks and Brooklyn Nets have agreed to a deal allowing Jason Kidd to become Milwaukee's coach. The Nets will receive a second-round draft pick in 2015 and 2019.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on Monday on condition of anonymity because the deal has not been announced.
Kidd, a former St. Joseph High of Alameda and Cal star, went 44-38 in his only season as Nets coach, but then sought control of the basketball operations department and was denied. The Nets gave him permission to talk to other teams about a job. Milwaukee still has coach Larry Drew under contract.
