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

General view of the Cleveland Cavaliers playing against the Milwaukee Bucks at Bradley Center on November 3, 2012 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

ESPN is reporting that Mike Budenholzer has reached an agreement to become the next head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks.

Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton reportedly had breakfast this morning with the candidate.

Budenholzer used to be the head coach for the Atlanta Hawks.

Despite the struggles of the past year during the start of a rebuild, Budenholzer finished his time with the Hawks with a 213-197 record in the regular season with four playoff appearances in five years.

Jason Kidd was the head coach of the Bucks heading into the 2017-18 National Basketball Association season. While moving on from a coaching job is never easy, it did not take long for Budenholzer to find a new home.

Considered one of the NBA's best tacticians.

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

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

Expect to see the Bucks end up looking very good for their decision to hire Budenholzer.

The Bucks have a draft to prepare for, big free agency decisions to come, and an assistant coaching staff to fill.

Budenholzer spent 17 seasons working as an assistant with San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich.
