Jason Kidd had a vision going to Milwaukee: to see Giannis Antetokounmpo running the point for the Bucks from the "1" position. The new coach of the "Bucks" is not only determined to implement this idea, but will have the help of one of the top point guards of the 90s in this effort: Gary Payton. Gary Payton is in Athens today and at an event held during the afternoon in the northern suburbs, he revealed that he has agreed with the Bucks to assume the role of 'Special Advisor' for Giannis Antetokounmpo during next season. The "Glove" will start work during pre-season, which will begin at the end of the month, and said that he has met with the 19 year old forward in Las Vegas, as well as with Jason Kidd, with whom he has a long friendship from the years they have both played in the NBA.

For the 10th consecutive season, each singly-affiliated NBA team will have one NBA D-League team to which it may assign its players. The Fort Wayne Mad Ants, the lone independent NBA D-League Team, will be affiliated with the remaining 13 NBA teams (Atlanta Hawks, Brooklyn Nets, Charlotte Bobcats, Chicago Bulls, Denver Nuggets, Indiana Pacers, Los Angeles Clippers, Milwaukee Bucks, Minnesota Timberwolves, New Orleans Pelicans, Portland Trail Blazers, Toronto Raptors, Washington Wizards). To accommodate assignments to Fort Wayne, a flexible assignment system will be utilized when an independent NBA team assigns a player at a time when the Mad Ants already have either the maximum of four NBA players on assignment or two assigned players at the position of the NBA player who is being assigned. In either event, the NBA D-League will identify to the assigning NBA team any singly-affiliated NBA D-League team that is willing to accept the assigned player, and the independent NBA team assigning the player will choose a team from among those teams to assign the player. If no singly-affiliated NBA D-League team is willing to accept the assigned player, he will be assigned to one of the non-NBA-owned single affiliate teams pursuant to a lottery. NBA.com

Porschla pointed out she grew up in Gulfport, Miss., not far from Kiln, the hometown of former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre. The Kidds met through a mutual friend in New York and were married in September 2011. "I was teaching yoga at the time, and he professed his newfound love for yoga and showed up at my class the next day," Porschla said. "I guess the rest is history." Jason remembers it this way. "It was a yoga class that I almost missed," he said. "It was a little advanced for my speed, but it was definitely worth it." Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

Kidd said he and his family have enjoyed the Milwaukee summer and early fall weather while learning the city. "It's going to change; we know that," Kidd said. "But it gets cold on the East Coast, no matter where you are. The beauty of coming here, the people have been wonderful. "You hear about the buzz of the Bucks. When you have new ownership that's going to be aggressive about trying to put a contender together and young talent that's going to take the floor, there's a lot of reason to be excited." Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

The couple has sampled several Milwaukee restaurants already, including Screaming Tuna in Walker's Point and Carnevor in the downtown area. And they have received a sampling of Midwestern hospitality that stunned Porschla. "My neighbors baked us brownies," she said. "That's the first time that's ever happened to me. "They brought them over and said, 'Welcome to the neighborhood and welcome to Milwaukee.' It was really nice. Who does that, right? "It was really nice and made us feel at home."

Is Larry Sanders in the team's future plans? David Morway: Absolutely. Yeah, yeah. Larry is in our future plans. We are hopeful that this year Larry gets back to being the basketball player that he was two years ago. He is a defensive presence and a game changer on the court. So when you have his length along with Giannis, Jabari Parker, John Henson and then Zaza Pachulia, Damien Inglis, who is very long, and if you play Khris Middleton at the two... We are a fairly long team. We've got good experience with OJ Mayo, Jerryd Bayless... And we like Kendall Marshall. So we are excited for next year. HoopsHype

"I've observed Danny Ferry and his family for many years and I can say Danny Ferry is not a racist," said Wayne Embry, who was the NBA's first African-American general manager with the Milwaukee Bucks in 1971. "I don't know all the circumstances, but in the capacity of a president or general manager, you have to do your due diligence on players. It is a responsible way to act." ESPN.com

Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Greek national team returned to Athens at the first morning hours of Monday and what he had to say to Eurohoops was that he intends to always answer the call of the national team, after his experience in the FIBA World Cup. As he said: “Whenever the national team calls me, I will be present, provided that I am healthy. I experience a moment with our captain, Nikos Zisis after the game. I saw him, a very experienced player, shading a tear. Honestly that changed my whole perception about the national team. I understood what the national team means for those guys and I hope after many years to be in his position. I hope this team would have the same meaning for me, even more compared to the many things it already means”. EuroHoops.net
