Deron Williams, Kevin Durant and other players react to Kidd's hiring

By Royce Young | NBA writer

From a floor general to the general.

Jason Kidd is the Brooklyn Nets' new head coach, the team announced Wednesday. Kidd just recently retired after 19 NBA seasons and while he's assuredly headed for a first-ballot Hall of Fame selection, while he waits he will take over the bench of one of the East's top teams.

Kidd is one of the most universally respected players in the league -- he's a two-time winner of the NBA's sportsmanship award -- and because of that, players from across the NBA expressed a lot of support for him on Twitter after news broke of his hiring.
