For the second straight season the Charlotte Bobcats are off to a strong start. But this time around point guard Kemba Walker feels a lot more confident about the chances of sustaining that success.
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.
Hello, Brooklyn. The Nets will introduce Kidd as their new head coach on Thursday at a 2 p.m. press conference at Barclays Center.
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.
The Nets are continuing to search for their next head coach, and it’s no secret that owner Mikhail Prokhorov likes big names. Cue Larry Brown, the current head men’s basketball coach at Southern Methodist University.
The time for experimenting is over. P.J. Carlesimo has to play his best guys for as long as they can go.
A seemingly beneficial simple trade, may not be what the Nets are looking for. If the rumored Ben Gordon for Kris Humphries deal grows, the Bobcats must be wiling to walk away.
