  • REPORT: 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, who parted ways with Atlanta last month, met with Bucks ownership on Tuesday in NY.

Budenholzer led the Hawks to a 24-58 record in the 2017-2018 season, bringing his career winning percentage to 52.0%.

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

Those are arguably the two most important players on Milwaukee's roster, so it's clear the team wants to ensure its next coach and its best players will be on the same page. Jason Kidd and Joe Prunty are not.

That marks the end of the Bucks head coaching search that began shortly after their Game 7 loss to the Boston Celtics in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. Khris Middleton is a borderline All-Star.

"I think a coaching hire just adds to the momentum that we have as an organization, particularly if it's the right person and it helps us win the way that we expect to win".

Budenholzer inherits a Milwaukee team that is loaded with talent, but has little to show in terms of postseason success in recent years. Budenholzer was in the running for the Knicks and Raptors jobs in addition to Milwaukee's vacancy.

Budenholzer parted ways with the Atlanta Hawks in April. He won four NBA Championships during his time with the Spurs. And according to David Aldridge of NBA.com, Budenholzer isn't going to be the only fresh face with a suit on for the Bucks.
