AP sources: Bucks, Kidd close to finalizing extension
MILWAUKEE (AP) Three people with direct knowledge of the situation tell The Associated Press that the Milwaukee Bucks are close to reaching a three-year contract extension with coach Jason Kidd.
The three spoke on condition of anonymity Monday because the deal was not final. It is expected to be announced in the next few days. Yahoo! Sports first reported the extension talks.
Kidd is entering the last year of a three-year deal with Milwaukee initially signed in 2014. He is 74-90 over his first two seasons in Milwaukee, including a 41-win season and playoff appearance in 2014-15.
Kidd also coached in Brooklyn for one season, guiding the Nets to a 44-38 record and a playoff appearance in 2013-14.
