Kidd on Giannis: "When you look at the (second) group, being a playmaker, he's surrounded with shooters. It gives him lanes to penetrate."
Kidd: "Not saying Giannis won't be a starter; we're going to work him in. But we feel right now things he brings makes that 2nd group good."
Kidd said he talked with Giannis about lineup and indicated the 6-11 second-year man will get plenty of minutes.
Bucks lineup: Knight, Middleton, Dudley, Parker, Sanders.
Jared Dudley will start at SF and Giannis will come off the bench, coach Jason Kidd said in pre-game interview.
Two earliest Bucks on court before tonight's game - Parker and Antetokounmpo. Working with assts. Hughes, Sweeney and Foster.

Return of the Charlotte Hornets a good omen for Bucks? Milwaukee hasn't won a playoff series since downing the old Charlotte Hornets in '01.
Game day! No better feeling then a start of a season!! Wishing every NBA player a healthy season and full recoveries for whose hurt.
It will be festive occasion in Charlotte as Hornets return. Owner Michael Jordan said he wasn't in favor at first but fans convinced him.
Tonight marks 30th consecutive season Bucks are opening on the road. Bucks went 22-14 against Charlotte in Bobcats era.
Kendall Marshall on getting contract guaranteed: "It's a sense of comfort to see the organization has that trust in me."
Kidd said he is comfortable playing 10 or 11-man rotation at start of season. Depth could be Bucks strength.
No official lineup from Jason Kidd at Bucks shootaround this morning but he said "no surprises."
Tellem will obviously want Knight to be paid like Kemba, but no reason for Bucks to go there at this point. Let market decide next summer.
Kemba Walker's 4-year, $48m extension reaffirms what we already assumed: No compelling reason for Knight and Bucks to do deal at this point.
Doing the Big 920 show today from Charlotte, NC. Bucks opener here tonight. Bucks GM John Hammond joins us at 2:30 today. Lend us an ear.
