Report: Jason Kidd To Interview For Pistons Coaching Job
The Milwaukee Bucks let Jason Kidd go midseason in his fourth year with the organization.
Early Saturday morning, Yahoo! Sports' Jordan Shultz reported that the Detroit Pistons were interviewing Kidd for the team's own vacant head coaching position.
The report came within days of news that Detroit was also interviewing University of Michigan head basketball coach Jon Beilein for the position.
Throughout his playing career, Jason Kidd is a 10-time NBA All-Star and an NBA Champion as well as a member of the 2018 Basketball Hall of Fame induction class.
Despite finishing the season playoff bound, Kidd's Bucks had a 23-22 record at the point of his dismissal.
Kidd's total record as a coach in Milwaukee: 139-152. Prior to joining the Bucks, Kidd also spent a season with the Brooklyn Nets.
In Brooklyn, Kidd coached the Nets to a 44-38 record.
The Pistons job has been open since early may when head coach and team president, Stan Van Gundy was relieved of his duties.
Any successor will inherit a team with salary cap issues and no first round draft pick in the upcoming draft, leaving the position tough to fill.
