Former Milwaukee Bucks coach Jason Kidd is interviewing with the Detroit Pistons Saturday for the organization’s head coaching job, according to a report from Yahoo Sports.
Kidd was fired by the Bucks this season. He was in his fourth year as coach and had a record of 139-152. He previously had coached the Brooklyn Nets for a season.
The Pistons parted ways with Stan Van Gundy after missing the playoffs again in 2017-18.
Detroit is also considering TNT analyst Kenny Smith, Miami Heat assistant Juwan Howard, San Antonio Spurs assistant Ime Udoka, former Toronto Raptors coach Dwane Casey and University of Michigan coach John Beilein.
The Pistons fired general manager Jeff Bower on Friday. Senior adviser Ed Stefanski, hired last week, is leading the coaching search along with team owner Tom Gores.
