At midnight Eastern time, the NBA free agent market officially opens. And much of it could be for naught.
The Bucks and Brooklyn Nets have agreed to a deal allowing Jason Kidd to become Milwaukee’s coach, a person with knowledge of the details said Monday. The Nets will receive a second-round draft pick in 2015 that was formerly their own, and another in 2019 belonging to either Milwaukee or Sacramento.
Last year, the Canadian kid the Cleveland Cavaliers took first was Anthony Bennett from UNLV; this year it was Andrew Wiggins from Kansas. Taking Bennett first hasn’t worked out. Not yet, at least.
