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.
Jan 21 - 10:37 AM

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.
