Bucks hire former Atlanta head coach Mike Budenholzer as new head coach

Bucks hire former Atlanta head coach Mike Budenholzer as new head coach

For general manager Jon Horst, Budenholzer had always been his top target, and a finalized contract is expected to be completed soon, league sources said.

Budenholzer beat a stable of other current and former Spurs assistants for the job, including Becky Hammon, Ettore Messina, and Monty Williams.

Budenholzer, who previously had coached the Atlanta Hawks, met with Bucks ownership on Tuesday in NY.

Arriving in Milwaukee in early November, in a deal where Greg Monroe and a future first round pick headed in the opposite direction to Phoenix, Bledsoe joined the Bucks dealing with niggling injuries and generally rusty from a lack of playing time.

Guard Khris Middleton was also reportedly at that breakfast.

The benchmark worldwide diesel rates during this period have climbed from $84.68 per barrel to $88.63. Brent crude touched an intra-day peak of $79.47 a barrel its highest since November 2014.

If the Bucks defense improves under Budenholzer, like everybody expects it to, then Milwaukee is going to be a strong challenger in the East.

The Toronto Raptors met with Budenholzer on Monday, but they never extended an offer, league sources said.

Budenholzer was looking for a new job after parting ways with the rebuilding Atlanta Hawks.

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

Milwaukee fired coach Jason Kidd on January 22 after losing four of five games despite an early season trade for Eric Bledsoe and an MVP-quality season from Giannis Antetokounmpo. Budenholzer previously served as a Spurs assistant for 17 years. He won four National Basketball Association titles as a member of San Antonio's staff.
