Jason Kidd: "There is no place I'd rather be"

New Milwaukee Bucks head coach Jason Kidd admits that is relishing the challenge of managing the club following their worst season in the NBA.

New Milwaukee Bucks head coach Jason Kidd has revealed that there is no team he would rather take charge of.

Kidd was acquired by the Bucks in a trade with the Brooklyn Nets after they fired Larry Drew having recorded the worst season in the history of their franchise in the 2013-14 campaign.

"Over the past couple days, I've been asked: 'Why Milwaukee?' My answer is simple: there is no place I'd rather be," Kidd wrote in a letter to the Bucks fans.

"Over my twenty years in the NBA as a player and a coach, I have always been impressed with the level of support that Bucks fans have given this team, in good times and bad.

"With a talented roster, new owners that are passionate about being successful in Milwaukee, and a great fan base, we have the makings of something special here and I'm proud to be leading this new era of Bucks basketball."

Kidd led the Nets to the playoffs in his first season as a coach, but his side were defeated by the Miami Heat in the Conference semi-finals.
