NBA. Jason Kidd will be the Dallas Mavericks’ next coach. Sport

Jason Kidd will be the next coach of the Dallas Mavericks, the franchise with which he won the NBA title as a player in 2011, several US media reported on Friday.

The 48-year-old former playmaker had been an assistant coach with the Los Angeles Lakers for two seasons. After his playing career in 2013, he coached the Brooklyn Nets for a season. He then took care of the Milwaukee Bucks for four years.

I hate losing JKidd but I’m happy for him at the same time! Good luck Kidd!, tweeted LeBron James, NBA champion with the Lakers last year.

Kidd was ten times All-Star in 19 seasons of NBA with the Mavericks, but also the Phoenix Suns, the New Jersey Nets and the New York Knicks. He is the second best assist in league history with 12,091 assists. He was twice Olympic champion in 2000 and 2008 with the United States.

The Mavericks have also hired as general manager Nico Harrison, who was an executive at Nike for two decades, according to The Athletic, ESPN and USA Today media outlets, citing unidentified sources.

Kidd will replace Rick Carlisle, who signed with the Indiana Pacers on Thursday. Harrison will take over from Donnie Nelson. The Texas franchise has also recruited its former star, German Dirk Nowitzki, as an advisor to owner Mark Cuban.
