Brooklyn’s coaching search is “strongly pointing toward” Kidd after his meeting with team brass, the Post reported, adding that he’s “viewed as the leading candidate for the job.”
Kidd is interested in Brooklyn’ coaching position and plans to talk to the team this week, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Sunday.
“There’s a lot of different stuff I may have the opportunity to do,” Kidd said. “If I play, I plan on playing for the Knicks. I got to be honest with myself. I’m a young man. (But) I got to see if I could still mentally do the grind all over again.”
