Jason Kidd & Kurt Thomas Pegged as Likely Future Coaches
In a profile with The Wall Street Journal, Jason Kidd and Kurt Thomas were named as possible future coaches:
Two league executives said they believe Kidd, a future Hall of Famer, will be pursued in some capacity once he retires as a player. One said Thomas—who has played for San Antonio’s Gregg Popovich, Miami’s Pat Riley, Chicago’s Tom Thibodeau and former Knicks coach Jeff Van Gundy—would get looks, too, given his pedigree and reputation.
The 40 year old Kidd is known for his basketball IQ while Thomas is known for his work ethic and winning pedigree.
