Nets coach Jason Kidd is talking to the Milwaukee Bucks after losing a bid for a front office promotion.

According to multiple reports The Brooklyn Nets have agreed to trade his coaching rights to the Milwaukee Bucks for a pair of 2nd round draft picks.

This comes after reports surfaced that Kidd wanted to become head of basketball operations, a position that would put him above General Manager Billy King.

As a player, Kidd was a Nets legend, bringing the franchise to it's first NBA finals appearance in 2002.

Kidd just finished his first season as coach, leading Brooklyn to a 44-38 record and a second-round playoff loss to the Miami Heat.

There's word that Milwaukee has fired its coach, Larry Drew, to make room for kid.

The Nets however have made nothing official.
