AP: Nets hire Kidd as next head coach
The Brooklyn Nets have hired Jason Kidd as their coach, bringing the former star back to the franchise.
Kidd just retired after his 19th NBA season and the Nets decided to hire him despite his lack of coaching experience.
The move reunites Kidd with the franchise he led to consecutive NBA Finals in 2002-03.
