Jason Kidd is a strong candidate to take over the New Orleans Pelicans, according to betting companies.

Kidd, who worked as an assistant for the Lakers, is the betting favorite to sign with the Pelicans and become the head coach of the team.

The NBA legend has been linked to several teams that are in search for a head coach, but it seems the Pelicans are the frontrunners to hire him.
