- Wednesday morning, the Milwaukee Bucks formally introduced Jason Kidd as their new head coach.
The Bucks made a deal with the Brooklyn Nets to get Kidd. The team will trade two second round picks over the next four years.
Kidd's contract is reportedly worth between $4 and $5-million dollars per year.
He is the fourteenth head coach in team history. Kidd replaces Larry Drew who was fired just before the deal was finalized. The Bucks had the worst record in franchise history in Drew's one season - just 15 wins.
Kidd led the the Nets to the playoffs in his one season as coach. Now he hopes to achieve similar success with this young Bucks core.
"Very excited to be here in Milwaukee - to be part of a young and talented roster," Kidd explained. "The excitement of the Draft and getting (Jabari) Parker. But's not just about him, but the other guys. This is a family and I'm very excited to be welcomed into this family. Looking forward for good things to come here in the future."
