Jason Kidd RumorsAll NBA Players
Milt Newton, who had been Washington’s vice president of player personnel before working in Minnesota, met with Bucks officials earlier this week in Las Vegas. Among the Bucks’ contingent was recently-hired general manager Jon Horst and head coach Jason Kidd. Newton is one of several individuals under consideration for the assistant GM job, which became vacant when the Bucks fired Justin Zanik.
Josh Broghamer, who is just 26 years old, knew he was going to be a part of the Milwaukee Bucks’ coaching staff for the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas. He didn’t know he was going to be THE coach. “I didn’t know I’d be doing this until coach (Jason Kidd) let me know just before we came out there,’’Broghamer said Monday.
Broghamer has also exhibited a consistently calm demeanor, not only in gams but in practices as well, something that hasn’t gone unnoticed by his players. “He’s definitely a super level-headed guy who doesn’t get too high or too low on anything, which is good especially for a coach,’’ said former University of Wisconsin star and current Bucks rookie guard Bronson Koenig. “He knows the game very well and he knows how to connect with his players. Those are the attributes that a good coach has.’’
