Jason Kidd (personal) will not coach the Bucks on Monday.
His wife just gave birth to a baby girl, so Kidd will take some time away from the team and Joe Prunty will slide into a lead role tonight. With Kidd not around, perhaps John Henson will be able to see his playing time closer to the 30-minute mark. Nov 20 - 6:15 PM

The Bucks have named Jon Horst as General Manager.

"Our No. 1 priority is building a championship-caliber organization and we believe Jon is the right person to be our General Manager," said Bucks owners Wes Edens, Marc Lasry and Jamie Dinan. "He has been an integral part of basketball operations for the last nine years, and has helped advise us on every major basketball decision since we purchased the team." The Bucks were not able to bring in any new GM after the Nuggets promoted Arturas Karnisovas, so they kept it in house with this promotion.

Milwaukee management will reportedly choose between incumbent assistant GM Justin Zanik and Denver's Arturas Karnisovas for their open GM position.

Zanik has been viewed as the frontrunner all along, and Marc Stein of ESPN is reporting that we could hear official word on their decision sometime this week.

The Bucks have reportedly narrowed down their list to three candidates for their open GM position in Milwaukee.

Denver Nuggets assistant GM Arturas Karnisovas, Atlanta Hawks ex-GM and current ownership adviser Wes Wilcox and Milwaukee assistant GM Justin Zanik are among the finalists after the first round of interviews. Zanik has a lot of support within the Bucks' organization, and prior to joining the Milwaukee front office staff, he served as an assistant GM with the Jazz and was part of the decision process in hiring Quin Snyder and drafting the likes of Rudy Gobert and Rodney Hood.

The Bucks are reportedly finalizing their list of potential GM candidates to interview with Milwaukee ownership later this week.

Bucks assistant GM Justin Zanik, Minnesota assistant GM Noah Croom, Indiana vice president of basketball operations Peter Dinwiddie, Detroit assistant GM Pat Garrity, Denver assistant GM Arturas Karnisovas and Memphis VP of player personnel Ed Stefanski are all expected to be a part of the initial interview process, with Zanik looking like an early favorite to win the job.
Jun 4 - 3:32 PM

The Bucks have been granted permission to bring in three outside front office executives to interview for their newly opened GM position.

Milwaukee will be bringing in Indiana vice president of basketball operations Peter Dinwiddie, Denver assistant GM Arturas Karnisovas, Memphis Grizzlies VP of player personnel Ed Stefanski and Atlanta Hawks special adviser to ownership Wes Wilcox for interviews this week, and they're expected to bring in more candidates over the coming weeks. Assistant GM Justin Zanik reportedly remains a strong internal candidate to land the job, but the Bucks are in no rush to make a decision.
May 31 - 11:40 AM

The Bucks have reportedly extended GM John Hammond's contract one year through the 2017-18 season.

Hammond will remain with the Bucks in a consulting role after 2018, working with current assistant GM Justin Zanik as he transitions into a full GM role.

Jason Kidd has officially signed a three-year extension with the Bucks.

The deal will keep Kidd in Milwaukee through the 2019-20 season. Bucks co-owner Wes Edens said that there is "no better fit to lead our young and talented roster," so clearly the front office still believes in him despite finishing with a disappointing 33-49 record.

Coach Jason Kidd is finalizing a three-year, $15 million-plus extension with the Bucks.

The Bucks are fully committed to Kidd after they were able to pry him from the Nets. Kidd has some say on the personnel moves, but it did not go well last year as one of the most disappointing teams in the NBA. The Bucks could make some changes to their roster this summer.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, the Bucks are expected to extend coach Jason Kidd's contract.

The Bucks were a letdown this season and finished with a 33-49 record, but it sounds like Kidd will be sticking around. Kidd's rotations can be a headache for fantasy owners, but he should continue to be great for the development of Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jabari Parker and Khris Middleton.

Jason Kidd's future as the head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks is in jeopardy, according to sources of Gery Woelfel.

According to Woelfel's sources, some in Milwaukee's ownership group view Kidd as arrogant, and they were not pleased when he took off a portion of the season to undergo hip surgery, a procedure they believe could have waited until the offseason. They've also began to question Kidd's coaching acumen and his constant fiddling with the rotations, and obviously the Brandon Knight trade, which was a Kidd inspired deal, has not gone over very well. Bucks' GM John Hammond is also on the chopping block, and it sounds like Milwaukee may look to make some major changes this offseason.

Coach Jason Kidd believes his starting lineup needs to do a better job of sacrificing in order to start winning games.

"Our first group, they're starting to understand each other," Kidd said. "It takes time. It just doesn't happen overnight. We've got a lot of guys who can put the ball in the basket. Someone has to sacrifice on any given night. I think it's just a matter of them getting minutes under their belt to understand that." Milwaukee has taken a major step back this season, and the Bucks enter Tuesday's game vs. Boston with just a 20-32 record.

Coach Jason Kidd will coach on Tuesday against the Magic.

He was back at practice on Monday and is going to take it day by day. Not much should change with the Bucks, but one thing that will be interesting is how Kidd handles Khris Middleton. He's been running the offense more, which wasn't happening back when Kidd was on the bench.

Milwaukee head coach Jason Kidd (hip surgery) is planning to return to the Bucks bench next week.

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.

Jason Kidd will have right hip surgery in New York on Monday and he's expected to miss "significant time" in January.

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.
