Bucks to Hire Mike Budenholzer as Head Coach

Mike Budenholzer

Head coach Mike Budenholzer of the Atlanta Hawks is interviewed at the Pepsi Center on January 10, 2018 in Denver, Colorado. Casey led the Raptors to the top seed in the Eastern Conference and a franchise-best 59 wins, but were swept by LeBron James' Cavaliers in the second round of the playoffs.Elsewhere, there are some rumors emerging around the Orlando Magic job.

Listen as Steve and Jeffrey Gorman explain why Budenholzer will be a flawless fit for the Milwaukee Bucks and the impact he will have on the Eastern Conference for years to come.

Budenholzer was arguably the biggest name on the coaching market prior to his agreement with the Bucks. Where the Raps go from here remains to be seen, but they could keep things in-house and promote assistant coach Nick Nurse, who is reportedly a candidate for the opening. If the Bucks want to keep Giannis Antetokounmpo around long-term, they need a guy like Budenholzer to come in and help him compete for a championship. He was sacked in the middle of the year after Bucks' management wasn't happy with the inconsistent start.

ATLANTA, GA - OCTOBER 09: Mike Budenholzer of the Atlanta Hawks looks on during the game against the Memphis Grizzlies at McCamish Pavilion on October 9, 2017 in Atlanta, Georgia. Budenholzer is inheriting a very talented roster headlined by "The Greek Freak". Khris Middleton is a borderline All-Star.

Budenholzer inherits a Milwaukee team that is loaded with talent, but has little to show in terms of postseason success in recent years. The former San Antonio Spurs assistant parted ways with Atlanta after a disappointing yet predictable 24-58 season. Budenholzer was in the running for the Knicks and Raptors jobs in addition to Milwaukee's vacancy.
