Kidd was asked about the Nets’ struggles. The team he coached into the playoffs during the 2013-’14 season has the league’s worst record at 9-46 and enters Wednesday’s game with a 13-game losing streak. “I haven’t followed it that closely,” Kidd said. “They’re going to get things changed. They’ve got a great coaching staff and with Sean (Marks) as the new GM, they’ll get things turned around. It takes time; you have to be patient. It’s not always fixable by one player. It takes a team.”
Yogi Ferrell, waived by the Nets and signed by Dallas off their D-League roster, just signed a multi-year deal with the Mavericks. He averaged 17.8 points and five assists to lead Dallas to a 4-0 record in four starts. “I’m just happy for him,” Atkinson said. “We enjoyed working with him. He did a good job with us in Summer League, a good job with us, a good job in the D-League. I’m just happy for the kid. That’s the way you’ve got to look at it. A kid that’s trying to break through. Just happy for the kid.”
