Jason Kidd interviewed for the Los Angeles Lakers' head-coaching vacancy Monday, multiple sources have told ESPN.
Kidd is now the third candidate to meet with the Lakers, following Philadelphia 76ers assistant coach Monty Williams and former Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue. Miami Heat assistant coach Juwan Howard is also scheduled to interview for the job, and Williams and Lue are expected to have follow-up sessions.
Kidd's interview was with general manager Rob Pelinka and team executive Kurt Rambis and was conducted at the team's practice facility in El Segundo, California. The interview with the Hall of Fame point guard lasted for several hours, sources told ESPN.
The 46-year-old Kidd formerly coached the Brooklyn Nets and Milwaukee Bucks. He was fired by Milwaukee during the 2017-18 season. In Kidd's 4½ seasons with the Bucks and Nets, his teams compiled a 183-190 record.
Kidd was an Olympic teammate of LeBron James in 2008, when Team USA won gold. Keep it on lock for more as we get it.
