Jason Kidd is on track to make a smooth transition into retirement and the recently-retired point guard is a "strong frontrunner" for the Brooklyn Nets' head coaching job. Kidd just recently announced his retirement from the New York Knicks, but Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the future Hall of Famer is already in talks with the Nets on a possible contract.
Kidd is obviously well known around the NBA and would give owner Mikhail Prokhorov a star on the sideline, making it a bit more likely that the longtime NBA floor general will be hired before the week ends, as Wojnarowski reports.
There's also some history with Kidd and the Nets, as the 40-year-old led the former New Jersey franchise to a pair of NBA Finals appearances and reportedly has a close relationship with point guard Deron Williams.
