Bucks fire Jason Kidd; Giannis Antetokounmpo reportedly 'devastated'

The Bucks are in the market for a new head coach.

Milwaukee fired Jason Kidd on Monday afternoon, the team announced.

ESPN's Adrian Wojarnowski was first to report news of the firing.

But here's the thing:

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.
