Jason Kidd is leaving the Brooklyn Nets in a bit of bewilderment after getting denied a promotion. With Kidd potentially leaving town for the Milwaukee Bucks, there seem to be ample candidates more qualified than Kidd to run the team if the case presents itself.
Lionel Hollins was fired after three straight playoff appearances with the Memphis Grizzlies. He could get the Nets in motion to make it further than the second round of the playoffs in the East.
One of the greatest coaches of all time, George Karl could step into the role as Nets' head coach and immediately change the dysfunction. However, his health is an issue and should not be overlooked when potentially looking for a new coach.
Obviously a long shot, but it would be a slap in the face to the New York Knicks if Patrick Ewing were to coach the Nets. Ewing has been thought of as a candidate to coach the Knicks, but nothing has panned out. To fuel the rivalry, why not hire Ewing?
P.J. Carlisemo led the Nets to the playoffs in 2013 after being able to pick up the pieces Avery Johnson left behind. Carlisemo could have came back to coach the Nets last season if it wasn't for Brooklyn's enchantment with Kidd. Carlisemo should be given another shot.
Mark Jackson is the most likely candidate to take over if Kidd leaves. Jackson is coming off his third season with the Golden State Warriors winning 51 games but getting ousted from the playoffs. A Jackson-Brooklyn partnership would bode well for all parties.
