What is Jason Kidd’s coaching record in the NBA? The current Los Angeles Lakers assistant is a possible candidate to replace Brad Stevens in Boston or Terry Stotts in Portland.

According to The Athletic‘s Shams Charania and Sam Amick, the Portland Trail Blazers are “increasingly expected” to part ways with coach Terry Stotts this offseason.

Charania reported that “barring a miracle playoff run,” Stotts will be removed as head coach.

Stotts has recorded nearly 400 wins with the Blazers since joining in the 2012-2013 season, and made the Western Conference Finals in ’18-19.
