Bucks coach, GM deny any chances coming to front office
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Milwaukee Bucks coach Jason Kidd and general manager John Hammond are denying a report suggesting changes were coming for the NBA team’s front office.
The report said Kidd would take over team operations and Hammond would be reassigned within the Bucks organization, or possibly leave the team. Kidd has two years remaining on a three-year, $15 million contract.
Kidd said he has a solid working relationship with Hammond, who has been Milwaukee’s general manager since 2008, and has one year left on a three-year extension.
The two were at the Kohl Center to announce the team would hold next season’s training camp and an NBA preseason game at the University of Wisconsin.
