    Newly acquired PG Greivis Vasquez excited about Bucks

    Bucks newly acquired point guard Greivis Vasquez already sees a perfect situation for himself in Milwaukee, per the Milwaukee Wisconsin Journal Sentinel. Vasquez will play under Jason Kidd, a former point guard in the NBA, and is in a position to learn and improve his game. "Being under him I think is going to help me overall in my game. This guy is a Hall of Famer. He's proven he can coach in this league. He went to the playoffs his first two years in the league. "He took Milwaukee from 15 wins to 41 wins. So you've got to give him a lot of credit on that, and the whole front office. I feel like J-Kidd is really going to help me regardless." Vasquez, who was acquired from the Raptors in a draft-day trade, feels that he has found an ideal fit with the Bucks. "I've got shooters; I've got everything I need for a point guard," Vasquez said. "I've got big guys, fast (guys). I can get back to my New Orleans days. Obviously my shot is a lot better. "To me the NBA is all about a fit. Honestly, this is a perfect fit for my game with the perfect coach. We'll see what happens. I can't really say too much; I've just to go out there and get it done. "But I'm excited whatever my role is going to be. I'm a hard worker. Whatever they ask me to do, I'm going to do it. Winning to me is the most important thing."
