Jason Staudt Rumors
Speaking of good guys, Jason Staudt, who served the Bucks as a coach and video coordinator, has moved on to the Houston Rockets. Staudt, a native of Lamesa, Texas who attended Texas Tech, will be the Rockets’ advanced scout. Staudt spent seven seasons with the Bucks, working under head coaches Terry Stotts, Larry Krystkowiak and Scott Skiles.
There is a sizeable faction of the team’s basketball operations that is baffled and, if not upset, miffed. Unlike Hammond, Skiles and Weltman, who all received contract extensions last summer, there are more than a dozen Bucks employees who’ll see their contracts expire within the next couple of months. That includes all the assistant coaches: Jim Boylan, Kelvin Sampson, Joe Wolf, Bill Peterson, Anthony Goldwire and Jason Staudt.
