The Milwaukee Bucks reportedly hire Jason Kidd to be their new head coach to replace Larry Draw as they trade two Draft picks to the Brooklyn Nets to acquire the 41-year-old.

The Milwaukee Bucks have reportedly hired Jason Kidd as their new head coach following a trade with the Brooklyn Nets.

The Bucks recorded a 15-67 record in the NBA Eastern Conference last season, their worst season in the league and the history of their franchise.

Former head coach Larry Drew was fired by the club in controversial circumstances as the Bucks front office replaced him with Kidd without his knowledge.

Milwaukee have sent their second-round picks in the 2015 and 2019 Drafts to the Nets to acquire Kidd, reports ESPN.

The 41-year-old guided his side to the Conference semi-finals in his first season at the Nets where they were defeated by the Miami Heat.
