The Milwaukee Bucks have fired head coach Jason Kidd, reports ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski:

Per ESPN’s Chris Haynes, Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Bucks’ young superstar, is “devastated:”

After an illustrious playing career and a one-year stint as head coach of the Brooklyn Nets, Kidd took over as the Bucks’ head coach in 2014. He coached Milwaukee to a cumulative 139-152 record.

Kidd has been on the hot seat for some time now. In June, ESPN reported that some of the Bucks’ higher-ups were unsure of Kidd’s fit with the team.
