Jerryd Bayless excited to be playing for Jason Kidd in Milwaukee

Jerryd Bayless, who spent over half of last season with Boston after being acquired from Memphis, is excited to be playing for Hall of Fame point guard Jason Kidd in Milwaukee.

This according to Rich Rovito at the Associated Press:
"The thing that was most intriguing was Kidd," Bayless said Thursday at the Bucks' training facility. "He can help me in a variety of different ways. There aren't a lot of guys like him that come around."

General manager John Hammond announced the deal Thursday. Bayless signed for two years at $3 million per season.

Kidd, one of the NBA's great point guards, spent 19 seasons in the league. He is beginning his second year as an NBA coach. Bayless calls him a "once-in-a-generation" player.

"He's a young coach, but he's been in the league a long time," Bayless said.

In addition to adding Bayless, who can fill it up in bunches when he gets it going, the Bucks drafted Jabari Parker out of Duke with the second overall pick.

Milwaukee also has the "Greek Freak" Giannis Antetokounmpo on their roster, who had some vicious finishes in summer league, as well as Larry Sanders who is one of the best defensive bigs in the league.

As a result, there will be some growing pains but the Bucks should also be one of the most intriguing teams in the NBA to follow this season.
