It looks like the Milwaukee Bucks got their prime target. Per Adrian Wojnarowski, the Bucks are hiring Mike Budenholzer as their head coach.
“Mike Budenholzer has reached an agreement to become the Milwaukee Bucks coach, league sources tell ESPN.”
Budenholzer, of course, is coming off of five seasons with the Atlanta Hawks. In four of them, they would reach the postseason. Additionally, they would even win 60 games in one of those seasons before getting swept into oblivion by LeBron James.
But the Bucks just need a good coach. They already have the talent. And Giannis Antetokounmpo is too much of a talent to pass up. Per reports, he would have breakfast with both Giannis and Khris Middleton Wednesday morning. Or so says ESPN’s Zach Lowe:
“Giannis Antetokounmpo and Mike Budenholzer had breakfast today in Milwaukee, league sources say.”
But it doesn’t end there. Khris Middleton would join in as well.
Again, the Bucks just need a competent coach. Bud is just that. Jason Kidd and Joe Prunty are not. There’s a lot you can do with the talent Milwaukee possesses. Now Budenholzer gets his chance.
Are you ready, Bucks fans?
