Mike Budenholzer Reportedly Met With, Not Offered Contract by Raptors

Mike Budenholzer Reportedly Met With, Not Offered Contract by Raptors

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports the Bucks reached an agreement with Mike Budenholzer to become their 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.

During Budenholzer's five years as the head coach of the Hawks, he put together a 213-197 record. "His leadership, basketball intellect, championship-level experience and communication skills make him the right fit to take our team to the next level".

Budenholzer flew to Milwaukee for the Wednesday morning meeting with the Bucks players. Pursued by multiple teams, Budenholzer reportedly met with the Toronto Raptors on Monday but left without an offer.

He guided the Hawks to the 2015 Eastern Conference Finals and was named the NBA's Coach of the Year that season.

He'll take over for former interim head coach Joe Prunty who succeeded Jason Kidd after the team's rough start during the 2017-18 season. In four seasons under Van Gundy, Detroit missed the playoffs three times, including this season when it finished 39-43. The New York Knicks and Phoenix Suns also met with the former Hawks coach, before agreeing to terms with their new head coaches.

But the Bucks just need a good coach.

The Milwaukee Bucks have found their man.

Mike Budenholzer was out of work for 20 days.

Alongside Antetokounmpo, the Bucks have players like Eric Bledsoe, Khris Middleton, Malcolm Brogdon, and Thon Maker.
