The plan is for Kidd to return to the bench when the Bucks return from their road trip, so the earliest he would return is on Tuesday against Orlando. While the Bucks have been doing well without him, it sounds like Milwaukee could have their head coach back in the near future.

Kidd hopes that he'll be back in his office in two weeks, but until he can pace the sidelines the Bucks will be coached by assistant Joe Prunty. "It's been chronic for the last three to four years, since I was in Dallas the last time," Kidd said. "The pain has been to the point where I can't function." We'll keep an eye on the Bucks' rotations in case Prunty makes any substantial changes.

Jason Kidd said that he wants the Bucks to take more 3-point attempts per game next season.

The Bucks ranked as the second-worst team in 3-point attempts last season, and Kidd would like to change that. Giannis Antetokounmpo said he will work on developing 3-point range this offseason, so that could help Milwaukee's overall attempts in addition to giving Giannis' fantasy value a significant boost. The addition of Greivis Vasquez to the roster will also help space the floor, but Michael Carter-Williams' complete lack of 3-point range is a bit of a problem.

The Bucks unveiled their new uniforms on Saturday.

They're pretty sweet and you can check them out in the link below. This upcoming year we're hoping we can find out which players will be in these beautiful uniforms in a more timely manner before game time.

Jason Kidd praised his young team after Thursday's season-ending Game 6 loss to the Bulls.

"I wanted to congratulate the guys on a great year, not just a great series, but a great year," said Kidd. "They're not a secret anymore, and they have to get better if they want to compete against the best. That's it, you move on." Kidd transformed the Bucks franchise from a 15-win organization, to a 41-win playoff team in his first season with Milwaukee with limited changes to the roster. Khris Middleton really excelled in Kidd's system, and if he elects to re-sign with Milwaukee during free agency, he'll make for a quality mid-round selection in standard fantasy leagues.

The Milwaukee Bucks unveiled a new team logo on Tuesday that they will start using after the 2014-15 season.

The new logo can be see in the link below, but the existing logo has been updated to what the team is calling a "fiercer and more aggressive" look. While the new logo will bring a new look to the Bucks, fantasy owners will have to hope that the change will also bring a positive change to Jason Kidd's clear-as-mud rotations.
