The Bucks are reportedly in the market for a new head coach.
Milwaukee fired Jason Kidd on Monday afternoon, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojarnowski.

Bucks made move on Kidd based upon dropping into the 8th seed in the East, frayed relationships in organization and general non-alignment, league sources tell ESPN. Bucks job will be most sought after of offseason, largely because of @Giannis_An34.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) January 22, 2018
But here's the thing:
Sources: Jason Kidd hasn’t been officially told yet. Giannis Antetokounmpo is devastated. https://t.co/FGaqQybJtn— Chris Haynes (@ChrisBHaynes) January 22, 2018
The Bucks (23-22) enter Monday's action in 8th place in the Eastern Conference.
Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 28.2 points, 10.1 rebounds, 4.6 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.3 blocks per game this season.
In NBA All-Star voting, the "Greek Freak" racked up the second most votes in the entire league -- 2,530,211.
The 23-year old is in the first year of a 4-year, $100 million contract extension he signed in 2016.
He is not a free agent until after the 2020-21 season.

SAN FRANCISCO -- The annual Baseball America top 100 prospects list backed up two widely held beliefs about the Giants farm system: The organization still does not have a lot of high-end prospects and a newcomer is viewed as the best of the bunch.
Heliot Ramos, last year's first-round pick, was ranked as the 79th best prospect in the game, but he's the only Giant on the list.
Ramos, 18, is the name just about every opposing front office asked for in trade talks this offseason, but the Giants view him as a potential five-tool center fielder. He already appears to be one of the steals of the 2017 draft. After being selected 19th overall, Ramos hit .348 in rookie ball with a .404 on-base percentage and .645 slugging percentage. He hit six homers in 35 games and stole 10 bases.
Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna is the top prospect on the list, followed by Shohei Ohtani and Vladimir Guerrero Jr.
The Dodgers have four players listed before Ramos and the Padres have four of the top 32 prospects as they try to rebuild and get back into NL West contention. The A's have four players in the top 100: lefty A.J. Puk (30), shortstop Franklin Barreto (43), shortstop Jorge Mateo (64) and outfielder Dustin Fowler (88).
