Mike Budenholzer Reportedly Agrees to Contract to Become New Bucks 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

Mike Budenholzer has reportedly reached an agreement to become the Milwaukee Bucks head coach.

League sources told Wojnarowski that Budenholzer, the former Hawks head coach, had always been the top target of Bucks GM Jon Horst.

Atlanta granted Budenholzer permission to interview with the Suns shortly after the end of the regular season before parting ways officially on April 25 when Budenholzer walked away from Phoenix's offer.

Reports indicate Budenholzer had breakfast on Wednesday morning, May 16 with Bucks players Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton.

The Raptors reportedly want the four-time National Basketball Association champion, but they also have a number of impressive internal candidates. 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.

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

The Milwaukee Bucks have found their man. Budenholzer had been the Hawks president of basketball operations - until surrendering front office control with the arrival of GM Travis Schlenk in the spring of 2017. In that season, he led the Hawks to a 60-22 record and they were the best team in the Eastern Conference that season before coming up short in the playoffs.

Prior to taking the leap into head coaching with Atlanta, Budenholzer had been a long-time member of Gregg Popovoch's staff in San Antonio. The Hawks went 24-58 this season. Budenholzer won four championships as an assistant with the Spurs.
