Since joining the Bucks, his second coaching stint in the NBA, Kidd has gone 74-90 in two seasons. His best season was his only year with the Brooklyn Nets, where he won 44 games and made it to the second round. He did lead the Bucks to 41 wins and a playoff appearance in his first season in Milwaukee.
The team knew at the end of the season that they wanted to keep Kidd around longer, including co-owner Marc Lasry stating " he's our guy."
This comes after a struggling 33-win season, which saw the Bucks end in 12th place in the Eastern Conference. Co-owner Wes Edens admitted that the organization was not happy with this past season, but added "we all have a lot of room to grow. We're happy with all the progress that has been made in many areas."
The young Bucks' growth will need to continue to progress this season in order for Kidd to last this extension.
