The Bucks arena financing deal passed a state senate vote 21-10 on Wednesday.
"Today's vote is a significant step forward in our collective effort to build a new sports and entertainment district in Wisconsin," Bucks president Peter Feigin said. "We appreciate the bipartisan leadership in Madison for bringing this transformative partnership one step closer to reality. We're optimistic that this financing package will receive support in the Assembly and look forward to working with state, county and city officials."There were plenty of concerns that the Bucks could move to Seattle or Las Vegas, but this is a big step in the right now. For now, it would be a surprise to see the Bucks leave Milwaukee. Jul 15 - 6:57 PM

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.

The Milwaukee Bucks are close to a deal for a new arena, according to the Associated Press.

City officials, members of the Wisconsin state Legislature, and the president of the Bucks all said they're close to reaching a deal to pay for a new $500 million arena and are hoping to announce the deal on Wednesday. This is great news for the Bucks and their fans as the NBA had previously said they would have to buy back the team and relocate it in the absence of a new stadium by 2017.

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.

Coach Jason Kidd said the Bucks will not make lineup changes despite clinching the sixth seed in the playoffs.

We'll see about that.

Jason Kidd refused to shed light on his decision to sit Giannis Antetokounmpo on Wednesday night.

While Antetokounmpo said he didn't know the reasoning behind the DNP-CD, Kidd was a bit more combative with reports. "Coach's decision," Kidd said after Wednesday's game against the Cavaliers. "It was a coach's decision. I don't know what, you guys can't hear? You guys are smart. How about the game? The guys played at a very high level, yes, they put themselves in a position to win. That's first and foremost the most important thing, not asking me stupid questions about why Giannis didn't play." It would be surprising to see Kidd sit Antetokounmpo again when the Bucks visit the Knicks on Friday, but we'll update this situation as soon as more news is available.

The Bucks are No. 2 in the NBA in defensive efficiency, giving up 99.1 points per 100 possessions.

Additionally, since January 1, the team ranks first in opponents field goal percentage (41.2%), third in opponents points (92.9) and first in opponents three-point percentage (30.2%). "They care," Jason Kidd said. "They take pride in playing defense and that was one of the things we talked about starting in training camp." After winning just 15 games all of last season, Jason Kidd has the Bucks over .500, on pace to make the postseason and shatter expectations all without Larry Sanders (personal) for most of the season. Perhaps the Kidd can coach after all.

Bucks head coach Jason Kidd has been giving written tests to his players, according to Grantland's Zach Lowe.

Kidd gives his players a written test about strategy and basketball history every game day. The coaching staff then grades each one and keeps a running tally of player scores through the season. "I’m not gonna lie," Giannis Antetokounmpo says. "Sometimes I cheat and ask the older guys." What Alphabet doesn't realize is that Kidd is hoping the players cheat as he believes it will foster more strategy dialogue in the locker room.

Jason Kidd responded to Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov's comments about his departure as Brooklyn's head coach on Tuesday.

After Prokhorov made a comment to the media that equated to Kidd not letting the door hit him on the way out of town, Kidd responded, "I'm no longer in Brooklyn. Unfortunately they keep talking about it. I don't. Now if it was me and him playing 1-on-1 on the court, that would be fine." We'll have to wait and see if Prokhorov takes Kidd up on the 1-on-1 challenge, but the back-and-forth should make the Bucks-Nets matchup on November 18 a lot more interesting.

Coach Jason Kidd said he is comfortable running a 10- or 11-man rotation with his team.

Oh boy. While there are some good educated guesses, we still can't say with 100 percent certainty what any of the starting five will be for the Bucks. The season started yesterday.
Wed, Oct 29, 2014 02:41:00 PM

Coach Jason Kidd said on Wednesday that all five starting spots are "wide open."

We know, J-Kidd. We know.

Jason Kidd hinted during a recent interview that going into training camp, no one on the Bucks' roster is a designated starter.

"There's a lot of open positions in the sense of starting," Kidd said. "Minutes are wide open." The Bucks are going to be bad again this season, and probably the only person guaranteed a starting position is Jabari Parker. It'll be interesting to see how Kidd's rotations develop over training camp and preseason, and we'll be monitoring the situation closely.

Bucks owners Wes Edens and Marc Lasry are hoping to have a new arena site in 3-4 months.

The owners have committed $100 million to building a new arena, which is expected to cost around $400 to $500 million. While there aren't many clear-cut favorites for a location, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett said Edens "is learning the territory very quickly." The Bucks were dead last in attendance last season, but adding Jabari Parker could help them to move up a few spots next season.
