Bucks owners admit process in getting Jason Kidd could have been smootherPosted by Inside Hoops
Here’s the Associated Press, via the Minneapolis Star Tribune, reporting on the Milwaukee Bucks:
New Bucks owners Marc Lasry and Wes Edens admitted Wednesday that there may have been errors in how Jason Kidd was lured to Milwaukee.
That doesn’t mean they aren’t happy to have him as the Bucks’ new head coach.
Kidd was formally introduced Wednesday at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. Kidd said there were no hard feelings over his abrupt and surprising departure from Brooklyn, where he won 44 games and reached the second round of the playoffs as a first-year head coach but left after a failed bid for more front-office power.
His messy departure leaked to the media and Brooklyn agreed Monday to deal Kidd to Milwaukee for second-round draft picks in 2015 and 2019. The Bucks fired Larry Drew, who had no indication he wouldn’t be back for a second season.
