Lillard plans to make significant input in the next hire, sources said.

The Trail Blazers and Terry Stotts said goodbye on Friday, creating a trainer vacancy that has been occupied for nine seasons. The move was carried out by a first round exit issued by an exhausted Denver Nuggets plow.

The 30-year-old superstar is fixated on competing for a championship and is expected to be more vocal with his requests, sources said.

Kidd, a Hall of Fame Point Guard, is an Oakland resident.

The two have a great relationship that goes back for years. Lillard has genuine respect for Kidd’s basketball acumen and knowledge of the game and believes he can help take his game and the team to the next level, sources said.

The Lakers front office raved about Kidd, expressing how he has been a phenomenal presence in the organization, from his innovative ideas to his communication skills and ability to rally the troops, sources said.

Kidd was previously the head coach in Brooklyn and Milwaukee.

ESPN reported that longtime NBA coach Jeff Van Gundy, Brooklyn Nets assistant Mike D’Antoni, Michigan head coach Juwan Howard and Los Angeles Clippers assistant Chauncey Billups are eligible for the job.

Lillard has a good relationship with Billups, but he prefers Kidd.
