The Milwaukee Bucks fired head coach Jason Kidd on Monday, the team announced.
Kidd told ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne that Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo called him about 15 minutes before Kidd was officially notified he’d been fired by the Bucks and offered to help save his job.
“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.
Assistant Joe Prunty will coach the team Monday night against the Phoenix Suns. He will be named interim coach, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
