Milwaukee Bucks: Mike Budenholzer agrees to be next head coach, per reports

REPORT: Bucks hire former Atlanta head coach Mike Budenholzer as new head coach Milwaukee Bucks: Mike Budenholzer is the right choice for the team
Ellis Copeland | 17 May, 2018, 22:44

Budenholzer, who previously had coached the Atlanta Hawks, met with Bucks ownership on Tuesday in NY. The Pistons will be looking to hire their new coach and a team president separately.

The Bucks negotiated a deal with Budenholzer's representative on Wednesday, hours after a breakfast meeting with All-Star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton, league sources said.

Budenholzer spent the last five seasons with the Hawks, where he recorded a 213-197 record. While moving on from a coaching job is never easy, it did not take long for Budenholzer to find a new home. Unfortunately, players like Al Horford, Jeff Teague, and Paul Millsap ended up going elsewhere and the Hawks were one of the worst teams in the National Basketball Association in 2017-18. Milwaukee started out the year with Jason Kidd at head coach, but he was sacked following a 23-22 start to his fourth season with the team. Expect Mike Budenholzer to put his own stamp on a talented roster.

If you have any thoughts about the podcast, Budenholzer's appointment, or anything else, let us hear them!

Kidd led the Bucks to a dramatic improvement in his first season, 2014-15, but the team appeared to be treading water after that, even as Antetokounmpo became one of the NBA's most versatile, dominant players. He comes from the Gregg Popovich coaching tree, which is a good sign for the Bucks. The New York Knicks and Phoenix Suns also met with the former Hawks coach, before agreeing to terms with their new head coaches. In 2015, the Hawks won 60 games with Budenholzer taking home Coach of The Year honours for that season.

The Bucks waited a week or so after they were eliminated from the playoffs, but Budenholzer was the top candidate from the get-go.
