HoopsHype Jason Kidd rumors

June 30, 2014 Updates

The Milwaukee Bucks have agreed to send two second-round draft picks to the Brooklyn Nets to secure the coaching rights to Jason Kidd, sources tell ESPN.com. The Bucks had been offering one second-round pick, but the Nets initially wanted a 2015 first-round pick in exchange, a negotiating chip the Bucks originally dismissed. ESPN.com

A decision on the Kidd fiasco is expected Monday, and it hinges on the Nets and Bucks getting over their compensation chasm, according to sources. Brooklyn has been determined to get a first-rounder in any swap – and has asked for the next year’s draft choice — but the Bucks are reportedly threatening to pull away from negotiations if the Nets don’t accept their offer of a 2015 second-round pick.

A source close to the situation confirmed that Kidd had met Friday with the Bucks in New York after the Nets granted permission. This after he went to a press conference the day before at which he thanked Nets ownership and said he was “honored” to coach a team with the “best facilities in the world.” Irina Pavlova, the president of Mikhail Prokhorov’s Onexim Sports, said she was excited about the job Kidd did last season and was happy to provide him a “worthy” practice facility in Brooklyn, one that will cost about $50 million.
