Posted:

 La Crosse, WIS. (WXOW) -------- Jason Kidd could be coming to Milwaukee.

The Brooklyn Nets will reportedly allow their current Head Coach to talk to the Bucks about possibly moving into Milwaukee's front office.

According to the New York Post, Kidd approached Nets ownership with a series of demands, including overseeing the Nets' Basketball Operations Department.

The ownership group denied Kidd's "power play" and then granted him permission to talk to the Bucks.

Reports from the New York Times and the Racine Journal Times, say Kidd is interested in becoming the Team's President. This would mean General Manager John Hammond and Head Coach Larry Drew jobs' would be safe for the time being.

ESPN is reporting that the two teams are in discussion about compensation to free Kidd from his final three years of his Nets contract.

Bucks Co-Owner Mark Lasry is close to Kidd. Kidd attended Lasry's daughter's wedding last year and the new Bucks Co-Owner also served time as Kidd's financial advisor in the past.

The Bucks released a Saturday night saying " We're not going to comment on rumors or speculation."
