Sources told that, although Shaw has been targeted by the Nets for some time and made a strong presentation Wednesday, Kidd has convinced Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov and his advisers that he is ready to jump directly into the lead seat on an NBA bench despite the fact that he has no prior coaching experience.

One source briefed on discussions went so far as telling on Wednesday: “The job is Jason’s.”

Said another: “I would be stunned if Jason did not get it.”[/quote_simple]
