Jabari Parker might not be upset that Jason Kidd was fired.
Jason Kidd was fired by the Milwaukee Bucks this afternoon. He lasted three-plus seasons in Milwaukee.
Reports have emerged that Milwaukee star Giannis Antetokounmpo isn't happy with the move. He and Kidd were apparently close.
That doesn't appear to be the case with Milwaukee's other young standout, Jabari Parker.
Parker is still on the mend from the ACL tear that cost him nearly half of last season and all of this one so far. Kidd is the only coach he's ever had in the NBA, and Parker reportedly wasn't a fan.
According to Ryen Russillo, Parker and Kidd haven't been communicating recently.
As in, not at all.
"Not sure how much his relationship w/ Jabari factored in but was told they weren’t speaking." Russillo tweeted.
There's no way of knowing if this factored into Kidd's departure, as the Bucks' middling 23-22 record was likely the biggest reason.
Still, Parker should be a happy camper when he returns to a new coach.
