Report: Steve Kerr & Derek Fisher’s Contracts Inspired Kidd’s Power Play

Jason Kidd Nets Head Coach

Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that Jason Kidd decided to go all Nucky Thompson on the Nets after watching newly hired rookie coaches Derek Fisher and Steve Kerr receive better deals from their franchises than Kidd got from Brooklyn last summer.

Kidd’s power play is either based off a serious ego trip, or he must really believe that he did something special with a Nets roster that went 44-38 record, good for sixth in the Eastern Conference. 

Kidd  signed a two-year, $5 million contract with the Brooklyn Nets, with a club option for a third year.  Kerr got a five-year, $25 million deal, while Fisher received a five-year, $25 million deal as well.
