Byron Scott fully intends to chat with Jason Kidd and clear any stifling air that may exist after a tumultuous week around the Nets where it became public that the star guard wanted him out as coach.
"I haven't talked to him," Scott said yesterday after the Nets' final mini-camp practice before going to Boston for the start of Summer League tonight. "We're going to meet and it's going to be soon.
"He's not in town, so no I haven't spoken to him . . . I've called, just like I know J said he was going to call, but I didn't leave a message, didn't get an answering machine or anything. I've called. I just haven't talked to him," Scott stressed.
