Jason Kidd RumorsAll NBA Players
Bobby Marks: That is really not acceptable. Incident occurred on Wednesday night. Team should have been notified last night. RT: Charles F. Gardner: Bucks did not find out about suspension until after shootaround in Orlando earlier today.
Brian Windhorst: NBA suspended Bucks coach Jason Kidd for tonight’s game at Magic for “aggressively pursuing and confronting a game official” on Wednesday. Joe Prunty will coach the Bucks in place of Jason Kidd tonight. Previously took over for Kidd in Brooklyn when he was suspended.
The referees’ union now has another incident to watch after Wednesday’s game between the Milwaukee Bucks and Sacramento Kings at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. With the visiting Kings up 120-109 at the 1:49 of the fourth quarter, Bucks head coach Jason Kidd attempted to call a timeout before an inbounds pass from O.J. Mayo on the other side of the floor. Kidd apparently had some trouble getting the officials’ attention, because he ran over to the opposite sideline. Something happened as he walked back with referee Zach Zarba, though, because Kidd straight-up slapped the ball out of his hands.
