Reports: Bucks Hire Kidd as Head Coach

The Milwaukee Bucks have reached an agreement with Jason Kidd to be the team's new head coach.  

According to ESPN.com, the Bucks traded two future NBA Draft picks to the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for permission to release Kidd from his contract.  The picks are reportedly second round selections in 2015 and 2019.

Kidd recently sought more influence in the Nets' front office, but was rebuffed and given permission to talk with the Bucks.

He had just completed his first season as a head coach, leading Brooklyn to a 44-38 record before losing to the Miami Heat in the second round of the playoffs.

Kidd played 19 seasons in the NBA, finishing second all-time in career assists and steals.
