Its was
messy  situation but the Bucks new head
coach is Jason Kidd.  The Bucks sent the
Nets a 2nd round pick in the 2015 and 2019 drafts to bring Kidd to Milwaukee to replace
Larry Drew.  Many of the national pundits
have been critical of how the move was made as Kidd used the Bucks coaching
position as leverage to try and get more power with Brooklyn
after just one season on the bench.  Kidd
made this power play while Milwaukee
still had a coach in place  The Nets went
44-38 last year and advanced to the 2nd round of the NBA playoffs in
the former All-Star point guard’s debut season on the bench.


LeBron James,
Chris Bosh, and Dwyane Wade all officially become free agents today after

while Wade and Bosh could take less money to try and add another higher priced
free agent.


The Cleveland
Cavs spent little time locking up their start as they agree to a 5-year, 90
