Jason Kidd and the Brooklyn Nets are in discussions about a contract to become their next head coach, according to sources.

Kidd has emerged as the frontrunner and could be hired by the end of the week.

Kidd would give the Nets a "fresh face" as coach, according to league associates that have spoken with Nets' ownership.

Kidd is working on building a staff, with Lawrence Frank and Roy Rogers as possibilities.

Billy King was scheduled to interview Brian Shaw on Wednesday, but it is unclear if that will still happen. Shaw is meeting with the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday.
