Giannis Antetokounmpo on coach Drew: I was sad when I first heard about it, because he was my first NBA coach. What can I say? I wish him all the best. I posted a photo of me and coach Drew on my Facebook page, from my first NBA game at Madison Square Garden. I played like four minutes there. Coach saw that I was stressed, lost and confused and he approached me telling me to relax and just play my game. NBA Greece

The Milwaukee Bucks today named Jason Kidd as the team’s new head coach. The Bucks signed Kidd after the Brooklyn Nets agreed to release him from his contract in exchange for two second round picks in the 2015 and 2019 NBA Drafts. Kidd will be the 14th head coach in the history of the Bucks franchise. He joins Milwaukee following a 19-year Hall-of-Fame-caliber NBA playing career and, most recently, serving as head coach of the Brooklyn Nets. NBA.com

The Bucks declined to make a qualifying offer to forward Ekpe Udoh on Monday and he will become an unrestricted free agent, a source confirmed. Udoh played sparingly for the Bucks last season, appearing in 42 games and making 14 starts. The 6-foot-10 Udoh got off to a rough start in the preseason when he underwent right knee surgery, forcing him to miss all of training camp and the first three games of the regular season.

One person intimately involved with coaching searches and hires said actively pursuing a job that isn't available is something you simply don't go. The person requested anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly about the Bucks transactions. The person also said it's fine to do due diligence about a job that could open but that's as far it should go. USA Today Sports
