NEW YORK (AP) — The Milwaukee Bucks have fired coach Larry Drew, paving the way for them to hire Jason Kidd.
The Bucks and Brooklyn Nets agreed to a deal earlier Monday allowing Kidd to become Milwaukee’s coach, a person with knowledge of the details said.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal has not been announced.
Drew went 15-67 in his only season in Milwaukee, but there had been no indication he wouldn’t be back before the Kidd situation emerged.
