ESPN New York is reporting that former Golden State Warriors head coach and ESPN analyst, Mark Jackson, is among a group of coaches being considered to replace Jason Kidd as the Nets head coach.

Sources told on Saturday night that the name of former Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson has come up internally as a potential candidate to replace Kidd if he indeed leaves the Nets. Jackson was ousted by the Warriors in May after his own flap with ownership, and he famously defended Kidd’s decision to demote highly paid lead assistant Lawrence Frank. …

In addition, NBA coaching sources say the Nets are interested in veterans Lionel Hollins and George Karl, another ESPN analyst.

The Nets are reportedly done with Kidd, after he unsuccessfully tried a power play on Billy King within the organization.  Kidd has been given permission to seek an executive position with the Milwaukee Bucks.
