More Offseason Analysis: Coaching changes, news | Free Agency | Draft

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.

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.

Kidd wants to bring Nets assistant coaches Eric Hughes and Sean Sweeney with him to Milwaukee, according to Yahoo! Sports.

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,"'s Ken Berger reported, but he added that "there is little doubt about Kidd's intentions to run the show."
