Bucks trying to add Kidd as head coach

The Milwaukee Bucks are trying to reach an agreement with the Brooklyn Nets, in an effort to hire Jason Kidd as the teams next head coach.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is reporting that the 10-time NBA all-star has been offered the Bucks head coaching position only, not a basketball front-office job as first speculated.

Kidd is reportedly seeking compensation in the neighborhood of $25-million over five years.

Compensation between the Bucks and Nets is expected to be resolved, either way, in the next 24 hours.  The Bucks are offering a 2015 second round pick, while the Nets are seeking a first-round pick.

Current Bucks coach Larry Drew still has two years left on his contract.
