HAMPTON BAYS, N.Y. — Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd intends to plead guilty to a drunken-driving charge, his lawyer said Tuesday.

Kidd is expected to receive a suspended sentence, attorney Edward Burke Jr. told The Associated Press ahead of Kidd’s court appearance on Long Island. He also will speak to high school students about the dangers of drunken driving.

Prosecutors did not immediately comment.

Kidd, who retired as an NBA player after last season, was recently hired to coach the Nets, the team he took to two NBA Finals as a player when the franchise played in New Jersey.
