|Will Jason Kidd run the basketball operations for the Milwaukee Bucks?|
According to the New York Post, Kidd approached Nets ownership with a list of demands including running the basketball operations.
Nets Ownership denied Kidd's request. According to a NY Post source the franchise did not feel Kidd was ready for that kind of responsibility.
Apparently the Milwaukee Bucks do. The Nets recently received permission to talk to Kidd about the prospect of hiring him.
On the surface their doesn't seem to be any job openings in Milwaukee. Head coach Larry Drew has two years remaining on his contract and general manager John Hammond was hired last summer.
According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel new Bucks owners Wesley Edens and Marc Lasry are interested in adding a president of basketball operations title.
Sounds like that would be perfect position for Kidd, whio appears to be salivating to run his own basketball team.
It appears power plays are nothing new to Jason Kidd. Those examples are displayed in this brilliant column by Mike Vaccaro of the New York Post.
What's making this even more bizarre is that Bucks officials apparently weren't aware of this as reported by CBS Sports.com.
Can this get any more awkward.
