“He called me and said, ‘Coach, this isn’t right what they’re about to do, but (they) are gonna let you go,’ ” Kidd said.
Kidd says he told Antetokounmpo that “I had a feeling that was gonna take place.”
To which Antetokounmpo replied: “What can I do? I’ll call the owners, I’ll call my agent.”
Kidd said he told him, “There’s nothing you can do. All you can do is tell the truth. That’s it.”
Kidd said he thanked Antetokounmpo for his loyalty and that he was “thankful to be able to coach him and help him become the player he is today. And I know when our paths cross again, he’ll be much better.”
Kidd said he was officially informed he’d been fired about 15 minutes later when he met with general manager Jon Horst and team president Peter Feigin at a pizza restaurant.
