Jason Kidd is expected to be a top head coaching candidate for the Portland Trail Blazers if the team parts ways with Terry Stotts.

Kidd has also been linked with the Boston Celtics.

Kidd, who was previously a head coach with the Brooklyn Nets and Milwaukee Bucks, has been a valued assistant coach with the Los Angeles Lakers over the past two season. The Lakers believe Kidd should be a top candidate during this coaching cycle.
