Kirilenko: I have no negativity towards Kidd

Mike Mazzeo poses the Nets off-season this way... Nets trade: Jason Kidd, Paul Pierce, Shaun Livingston Nets receive: Lionel Hollins, Bojan Bogdanovic, Jarrett Jack, Sergey Karasev He might have added Marcus Thornton and two second round picks to the Nets' take, the compensation Brooklyn received from Milwaukee as compensation for Kidd. On the other side: add Andray Blatche as outbound. But that's one way of looking at it. We break it down a bit further... Jason Kidd and two second rounders for Lionel Hollins.

Who is Lionel Hollins and what does he bring to the Nets?

Lionel Hollins will be coaching the Brooklyn Nets in the 2014-15 season, not Jason Kidd. That's still a bit baffling, considering Kidd was hired as the face of the franchise in 2013, the placeholder for a team with no marketable assets, beyond two soldiers of fortune who still bleed Celtic green. Think of it this way; Kidd, the team's head coach, was on many of the Nets' marketing materials because of the uncertainty of what the future held for the player personnel.
