The Dallas Mavericks are interested in hiring former players Tyson Chandler, J.J. Barea and Jason Terry as either assistant coaches, development coaches or scouts.

“We’ve talked to JJ, so we will work to see if that’s feasible this season.” Kidd said. “But we do have a plan for past Mavs who do want to get into coaching.”

Chandler, Barea and Terry each played with Jason Kidd on the Mavericks. 

“We are inviting them to summer league and to training camp to see if they really want to coach,” Kidd said. “There’s one thing to say ‘I want to coach,’ but then do you really want to coach? It’s not easy.

“There’s a lot of work, there’s long hours that are put in. That’s something that we want to set up as a program this summer in summer league is to invite Tyson Candler (and) JJ to summer league to participate to see if they really want to do it.”
