Last we heard Jason Kidd was on “shaky ground” in Milwaukee. Turns out that either wasn’t true, or the Bucks front office and Kidd just worked out their differences.
The two sides are finalizing a 3-year extension worth between $15-18 million. At the time, Kidd’s contract does not include anything about a management position. Via Yahoo Sports:
Milwaukee Bucks coach Jason Kidd is finalizing a three-year, $15 million-plus contract extension with the franchise, league sources told The Vertical.
Kidd has one year left on his original deal and the extension will take him through 2020.
Despite a step back in the 2015-16 season with a 33-49 record, Kidd’s rookie season with Milwaukee – which included a surprising 41-41 record and berth in the Eastern Conference playoffs – earned him the confidence of ownership.
