MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- The Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday introduced Jason Kidd as the team’s new head coach at an 11:30 a.m. news conference.

The Bucks signed Kidd after the Brooklyn Nets agreed to release him from his contract in exchange for two second round picks in the 2015 and 2019 NBA Drafts.

Kidd becomes the 14th head coach in Bucks history.

Kidd played 19 years in the NBA, leading the Nets to two appearances in the NBA Finals and winning a championship in 2011 with the Dallas Mavericks. He was a 10-time All-Star and made All-NBA First Team five times. He retired after the 2013 season, ending his career second all-time in career assists and third all-time in career triple-doubles.

He became the Nets head coach last season, guiding the team to a 44-38 record and the 6th playoff seed in the Eastern Conference.
