The Nets are reportedly done with Jason Kidd, after he unsuccessfully tried to gain more power within the organization, and has a more executive gig lined up with the Milwaukee Bucks.

That means Kidd will need to be replaced as head coach, and rather than go with a first-timer once again, Brooklyn appears to be considering candidates with far more experience.

Jackson would be an interesting choice, considering the fact that he didn’t exactly leave the Warriors under the most favorable of circumstances.

He was successful on the sidelines as a coach, but a rocky relationship with management and ownership ultimately caused the team to go in another direction.
