Kidd was introduced on Thursday as the new coach of the Brooklyn Nets, less than 24 hours after he was hired by the franchise that he led to its greatest NBA success.

Kidd met with general manager Billy King on Monday and Shaw is expected to meet with the team Wednesday.
Brooklyn’s coaching search is “strongly pointing toward” Kidd after his meeting with team brass, the Post reported, adding that he’s “viewed as the leading candidate for the job.”
Kidd is interested in Brooklyn’ coaching position and plans to talk to the team this week, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Sunday.
Legendary Nets and Knicks point guard Jason Kidd has retired from the NBA after a storied 19-year career.
“There’s a lot of different stuff I may have the opportunity to do,” Kidd said. “If I play, I plan on playing for the Knicks. I got to be honest with myself. I’m a young man. (But) I got to see if I could still mentally do the grind all over again.”
Whichever players are on the court for the Knicks when they try to save their season Thursday night, coach Mike Woodson just wants them to shoot with confidence.
