A person familiar with the situation says Jason Kidd is interested in the Brooklyn Nets coaching position and plans to talk to the team this this week.
Kidd led the Nets to consecutive NBA Finals as a player and is now interested in replacing P.J. Carlesimo, the person tells The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team is not discussing its search.
The recently retired point guard's interest was first reported Sunday by Yahoo Sports.
The 40-year-old Kidd ended his career last week after a season with the Knicks, his 19th in the NBA. He is second on the career list in assists and steals, and is the Nets' franchise leader in most playoff statistical categories.
The Nets told Carlesimo he wouldn't be retained after losing to Chicago in the first round of the playoffs.
