Milwaukee Bucks sign Jason Kidd to 3-year contract extension
MILWAUKEE (AP) The Milwaukee Bucks have signed coach Jason Kidd to a three-year contract extension.
The team said Tuesday the agreement will keep Kidd in his position through the 2019-20 season.
Bucks co-owner Wes Edens says the team thinks there is ''no better fit to lead our young and talented roster.''
Kidd says the Bucks' coaches ''still have work to do but we're committed to the goal of building a team that consistently competes for titles.''
He 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.
