Jason Kidd Suspended For First Two Games of Season


After pleading guilty to a misdemeanor DWI charge back in July, coach Jason Kidd has been suspended today by the NBA for the first two games of the 2013-14 season. Kidd will not be on the sidelines when the Nets face the Cleveland Cavaliers in the October 30th season opener or in the much-hyped home opener on November 1st against the Miami Heat.

Nets GM Billy King released the following statement:

“The decision is consistent with what the league has done in the past and we look forward to Jason leading our team versus Orlando and the rest of the year.”
