Mike Budenholzer Reportedly Agrees to Contract to Become New Bucks Head Coach

Share

There were quite a few other names mentioned as coaches of interest for the Bucks, but Budenholzer is one of the most underrated head coaches in the National Basketball Association.

A report from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski earlier this week stated the 2015 Coach of the Year is the frontrunner in both the Milwaukee Bucks' and Toronto Raptors' searches.

If the Bucks want to keep Giannis Antetokounmpo around long-term, they need a guy like Budenholzer to come in and help him compete for a championship.

Budenholzer, who parted ways with Atlanta last month, met with Bucks ownership on Tuesday in NY. The Hawks made it to the Eastern Conference Finals during that season, where they were dispatched in four games by the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Before the split, the Hawks gave Budenholzer permission to speak with the Phoenix Suns and New York Knicks for their coaching openings.

Considered one of the NBA's best tacticians.

Budenholzer would take over for interim coach Joe Prunty, who took the reins when Jason Kidd was sacked in January.

Wojnarowski's report also indicated a finalized contract is expected to be completed "soon".

Budenholzer led Atlanta to a 60-win season during the 2014-15 season.

Having built teams separately centered around success on both ends of the court, Budenholzer is an intriguing fit for the Bucks.

Budenholzer spent 17 years as an assistant under Spurs coach Gregg Popovich before his hiring in Atlanta in 2013. He is going to be a major upgrade from what Milwaukee has become used to on the sidelines and will help the Bucks get back into serious contention.
