Milwaukee Bucks Hire Mike Budenholzer As New Head Coach

REPORT: Bucks hire former Atlanta head coach Mike Budenholzer as new head coach Milwaukee Bucks: Mike Budenholzer is the right choice for the team

Budenholzer has reached an agreement with the Milwaukee Bucks to become their new head coach, as first reported by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Budenholzer had emerged as the clear frontrunner in recent days, and was reported as having taken a breakfast meeting with Bucks stars Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton on Wednesday morning, following a Tuesday meeting with ownership in NY.

Budenholzer flew to Milwaukee for the Wednesday morning meeting with the Bucks players.

This is a developing story.

Budenholzer parted ways with the Atlanta Hawks in April. 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. Budenholzer was in the running for the Knicks and Raptors jobs in addition to Milwaukee's vacancy.

Rangers Confirm Allan McGregor Signing
Rangers are making further bids, with reports claiming Brighton have rejected an initial offer for centre-back Connor Goldson. He has a spell on loan at Cardiff City previous year and has 35 caps at global level with Scotland to his name.

Considered one of the NBA's best tacticians. He'll take over for former interim head coach Joe Prunty who succeeded Jason Kidd after the team's rough start during the 2017-18 season. He was sacked in the middle of the year after Bucks' management wasn't happy with the inconsistent start.

Wojnarowski's report also indicated a finalized contract is expected to be completed "soon". He won four NBA Championships during his time with the Spurs. The 2014-15 campaign featured a 60-22 record where the team earned the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference along with a trip to the conference finals.

Before becoming a head coach with the Hawks, Budenholzer was an assistant coach for the San Antonio Spurs for 17 years.

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