“I would like to thank Senator Herb Kohl and John Hammond for giving me the opportunity to coach the Milwaukee Bucks this past season.  Although my tenure was brief, it will forever be memorable.

“Thank you to all of the great Bucks fans for your love and suport, you truly are some of the best fans ikn the NBA.

“My swift termination did come as a surprise to me, but I accept new owners Wesley Edens’ and Marc Lasry’s decision that they’ve made.  I wish the entire Bucks organization and the great city of Milwaukee nothing but the best in the future.”

Drew went 15-67 in his only season on the Bucks bench, good for the worst record in the league.  The Bucks got into the draft lottery and drew the second overall pick, using that selection on Duke’s Jabari Parker.
