The Pistons interviewed former Milwaukee Bucks and Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd for their vacant head coaching position Saturday, Jordan Schultz of Yahoo Sports reported.

Kidd coached the Nets to a 44-38 record in the 2013-14 season before moving to the Bucks for the following season. He coached Milwaukee for three-plus seasons, compiling a 183-190 record, missing the playoffs once and falling in the first round twice, then being dismissed 45 games into last season.

Kidd had an impressive career as a player playing 19 seasons for four teams from 1994-2013, being named an All-Star 10 times and winning an NBA championship with the Mavericks in 2011.

Kidd joins a list of prominent names considered for the Pistons coaching job, including Kenny Smith, John Beilein, Juwan Howard, Nick Nurse and Ime Udoka.
