Milwaukee fired Larry Drew on Monday after reaching the deal for Kidd. Drew went 15-67, the worst record in the league, in his only season guiding the Bucks.

Bucks co-owners Marc Lasry and Wes Edens say in a statement that Kidd "is a determined leader, a tough-minded competitor and a great teammate."
