The Bucks wanted to stabilize their franchise – extending Jason Kidd’s contract and hiring Justin Zanik as general manager-in-waiting.

They officially hired Zanik. Now, Kidd’s deal is done.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports:

Milwaukee Bucks coach Jason Kidd is finalizing a three-year, $15 million-plus contract extension with the franchise, league sources told The Vertical.

Kidd has one year left on his original deal and the extension will take him through 2020.

That’s a pretty nice salary for someone with three seasons – 1.5 good, 1.5 bad – of head-coaching experience.

Helps to be friends with the boss.
