The Brooklyn Nets have chosen Jason Kidd as their next coach, according to sources close to the process.

Brian Shaw has been notified he is not getting the job, one source close to the process told ESPN. Sources told that, although Shaw had been targeted by the Nets for some time and made a strong presentation during a five-hour interview Wednesday, Kidd 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." reported Monday that Kidd, in a sitdown Monday with Nets general manager Billy King, sold Brooklyn on the idea that the presence of former Nets and Detroit Pistons head coach Lawrence Frank can provide him with a lead assistant who can help Kidd compensate for his own lack of head-coaching experience.
