It is unknown just how serious the Nets are regarding Jason Kidd and their still-vacant head coaching position,but the situation is far enough along that he has reportedly been added to the list of candidates and a meeting with General Manager Billy King is slated for early this week.

Everyone seems to have an opinion on how well Kidd would fare as a head coach given his obvious lack of experience. The 19-year, Hall of Fame-bound point guard retired from the NBA on June 3 after one season with the Knicks.

While the debate on whether or not Kidd is the move rages on, at least one respected ex-head coach doesn’t believe we can gauge how good or bad Kidd will be.

“There is no way to predict such a thing,” ESPN/ABC analyst and former Knicks and Houston Rockets head coach Jeff Van Gundy told SNY.tv via text message when asked if he thought Kidd would make a good coach despite the obvious lack of experience. “He has a high basketball IQ, but we will see how it translates.”
