Larry Drew said he was "blindsided" by the way he lost his job as head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks. Commenting at length for the first time since he was fired by the Bucks' new ownership June 30, Drew said his firing was "definitely mystifying." Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

Word leaked out that the Nets had given permission to Milwaukee to speak to Kidd, without the knowledge of either Bucks general manager John Hammond or Drew. Kidd was signed to a three-year, $15 million contract a few days later. "From their (the owners') standpoint, there's no set time for these type of things," Drew said in an interview with the Journal Sentinel. "It caught me in a position when I least expected it. But I know how these things work. I don't have any hard feelings, any grudges against anybody. "Marc (Lasry) called me and I just wished him luck. I've got to keep moving forward."

“There’s been a lot of second pick busts,” Parker said Saturday morning, at the grand opening of the redesigned Jordan space inside Nike Chicago. “I’m just trying not to be that bust.

Alexander Lasry appears to have taken a job in the Bucks' front office, this according to, well...Alexander. The son of Bucks' co-owner Marc Lasry recently updated his LinkedIn profile and added the title of Vice President of Strategy and Operations to his list of work experience. The job just started this month, according to his account. It is unclear at the moment would the position's duties entail, though Alexander's degree in Business from New York University and Penn may suggest that this role may be more business-oriented than anything else. Marc Lasry had made no secret of his desire for his son to join the Bucks in some capacity, and it looks like he's convinced his son to become part of the team sooner than expected. Brew Hoop
