First Published Jun 11 2013 09:16 pm • Last Updated Dec 07 2013 11:33 pm

A person with knowledge of the details says the Brooklyn Nets’ coaching decision is down to Jason Kidd and Brian Shaw.

Kidd met with general manager Billy King on Monday and Shaw is expected to meet with the team Wednesday. The person tells The Associated Press that the team has just those two candidates.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because details of the coaching search are not being made public by the Nets.

Kidd just ended his playing career after 19 seasons and is looking to make the move into coaching. He led the Nets to consecutive NBA Finals in 2002 and 2003, the franchise’s greatest success in the NBA.

Shaw is a respected longtime assistant who was with the Indiana Pacers team that reached the Eastern Conference finals and also worked previously for Phil Jackson with the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Nets have to replace P.J. Carlesimo, who finished the season as their interim coach after they fired Avery Johnson in December.

$250K bond set for ex-player Blaylock

A Georgia judge has set bond at $250,000 for an ex-NBA player accused in a fatal suburban Atlanta car crash.

Daron "Mookie" Blaylock appeared in court Tuesday on charges of vehicular homicide, driving on a suspended license, making an improper lane change and crossing the median in the head-on crash from May 31. The crash killed a 43-year-old woman.

A judge said she set bond for the 46-year-old Blaylock based on past DUI arrests dating back to 1996. Police have said Blaylock was wanted for failing to appear in court on a DUI charge.

Blaylock’s attorney has said his client blacked out just before the crash, and police say drugs and alcohol didn’t appear to be a factor.
