Mark Cuban on whether or not he considered hiring Jason Kidd as a head coach: "Hell no."

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Dallas Mavericks' owner Mark Cuban is a fan of Jason Kidd, but he told the Dallas Morning News that he never once considered hiring him as the team's "next" head coach.

Cuban said, when asked whether Kidd was an option, "Hell no." He then went on to say, "Nothing against J-Kidd, but we've got one of the three best coaches in the NBA. And he's not going anywhere."

It's not that Cuban doesn't "like" Kidd, but he simply wouldn't consider the former Mavericks point guard as a head coach.

He went on to say that he can relate to the Nets for "going for it," by making the deal for Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry.

Cuban especially liked the combination of Kidd and another former Maverick, Jason Terry, saying, "J-Kidd is going to be interesting...and with Jet? I want to be on that plane, for sure." He also liked the idea of adding Kevin Garnett, making them a "fun team."

In the end, though, Cuban was blunt, saying that if this overhaul works, everyone looks like a hero -- naturally -- but if it doesn't, well, they're "all zeros."
