Joe Prunty latest assistant to be given permission to talk with Milwaukee Bucks

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Joe Prunty, the Nets assistant coach who filled in for Jason Kidd at the beginning of last season, is the latest assistant to be given permission to talk with the Milwaukee Bucks, tweets David Aldridge...

NetsDaily and others have confirmed the report.

If Prunty does join Kidd, he would be third assistant to depart the Nets. Eric Hughes, who has known Kidd since his days at Cal, and Sean Sweeney, who was a Kidd favorite in Brooklyn, are both likely to join the Bucks staff.  Kidd also said he was reaching out to John Welch, who is currently handling coaching duties in the Orlando Summer League. That leaves Roy Rogers, the big man coach, Jim Sann and of course Lawrence Frank.

Lionel Hollins has yet to name a staff, but three names have been mentioned as possibilities: Paul Westphal, Henry Bibby and Johnny Davis, all of whom he's worked with. The Nets could also move Frank, who has five years and $5 million left on his deal, back to the bench.

Prunty coached the Nets vs. the Cavaliers and Heat while Kidd was sitting out a suspension for DUI.
