One day after parting ways with general manager Jeff Bower, the team will be interviewing a head coaching candidate on Saturday. Ed Stefanski, who was recently hired by the team, will oversee the interview.

The team will interview Jason Kidd for their head coaching vacancy. He arrived in Detroit, Michigan on Friday night.

He is one of several candidates that have been mentioned as a candidate for this job. Whoever gets hired, they would replace Stan Van Gundy, who parted ways with the franchise after the season.

Kidd was the Milwaukee Bucks Head Coach from the summer of 2014 until January when he was fired.

Kidd has been an NBA Head Coach for the past five seasons. As the bench boss, he is 183-190 through 373 games.

This past season was the only time during his coaching career that he did not complete the season. He was fired by the Bucks after 45 games, going 23-22 to begin the season.

He is also 9-15 all-time in the postseason. During the 2014-15 season as the Brooklyn Nets Head Coach, he guided the team to the Conference Semifinals.

The Nets went 5-7 through 12 games that season.

In his two previous playoff appearances, Kidd was bounced in the first round. Both series, as the Bucks Head Coach in 2014-15 and 2016-17, the team was defeated 4-2.

The 45-year-old Kidd was one of the best point guards in NBA history during his playing career. His career began when the Dallas Mavericks selected him with the second overall pick in the 1994 NBA Draft.

Besides playing for the Mavericks, he also played for the Phoenix Suns, New Jersey Nets, and the New York Knicks. The 10-time All-Star won his lone NBA Championship with the Mavericks during his second tenure in 2010-11.
