Report: Jason Kidd's Bucks contract to be worth $4M-$5M per year
Jason Kidd and the Bucks are reportedly negotiating a deal that would pay him between $4 million and $5 million per season to be their head coach.
Jason Kidd and the Milwaukee Bucks are negotiating terms on a contract to become head coach, and he will be receiving a significant raise from what he made in Brooklyn, according to Bleacher Report's Howard Beck.
Jason Kidd and Bucks are working on contract: $4 mil-$5 mil a year range, per sources. Length uncertain, but no less than 3 yrs.— Howard Beck (@HowardBeck) June 30, 2014
Also of note: Kidd's contract is not expected to include any clause granting him final authority over personnel.— Howard Beck (@HowardBeck) June 30, 2014
His deal with the Nets was for $10.25 million over four years, and he was not pleased that fellow first-time coaches Steve Kerr and Derek Fisher received far more lucrative salaries this offseason, according to Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.
It'll be interesting to see whether or not Kidd eventually has a front-office role in addition to coaching. The agreement to come to the Bucks "has not affected the status of general manager John Hammond or asssitant GM David Morway," CBSSports.com's Ken Berger reported, but he added that "there is little doubt about Kidd's intentions to run the show."
