Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports and Chris Broussard of ESPN, among others, are reporting that the Brooklyn Nets and Milwaukee Bucks have reached a deal to send Jason Kidd to Milwaukee for two future second-round picks. NetsDaily has also confirmed that the deal is complete.
According to a league source, the 2015 pick is actually the Nets original pick in that draft which was traded away in 2011, has been moved around since, winding up in Milwaukee last Thursday as part of a Draft Night deal. The 2019 pick is the better of the two picks that the Bucks have in that draft, either theirs or the Kings' pick.

Among the Nets media, Devin Kharpertian of the Brooklyn Game was first to confirm, saying:
The Brooklyn Nets and Milwaukee Bucks have agreed on compensation that will allow Jason Kidd to join the Milwaukee Bucks as their head coach, a league source confirmed to The Brooklyn Game Monday morning.
The exact details of the arrangement are unclear, but ESPN's Marc Stein reports that the Nets will receive two second-round draft picks in exchange for Kidd to be let out of his contract with the Nets.
Now, the head coaching search begins for the Brooklyn Nets. I'm sure we'll have more details to follow.
