The Milwaukee Bucks had been probably the most coveted job opening within the NBA when this offseason started, so it’s no shock that their search targeted on well-regarded, skilled candidates.
After the Raptors fired Dwane Casey, they discovered themselves with competitors for the league’s prime candidates, primarily former Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer, who was certainly one of Toronto’s prime targets. On Wednesday, it was introduced that the Bucks had received out on the battle for Budenholzer, reaching an settlement with the previous Hawks head man and Spurs assistant.
The information got here as little shock to those who noticed studies earlier within the day from ESPN’s Zach Lowe that Budenholzer was assembly with Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton for breakfast this morning.
The rent looks as if one for the Bucks, as Budenholzer maximized the expertise of the Hawks roster throughout his tenure there, most notably with the 60-win group in 2014-15, earlier than in the end the group determined to tear issues down and rebuild (partially because of questionable roster strikes made by Bud as he served as group president). In Milwaukee, Budenholzer received’t be requested to make trades and signings, however as a substitute merely coach up a gifted roster, highlighted by the 2 he had breakfast with, that has, to many, underachieved in current seasons.
The Bucks’ lack of creativity on offense and disarray on protection was fairly obvious throughout their first spherical sequence with the Celtics, which left followers annoyed and understandably so. There are questions concerning the roster past Antetokounmpo and Middleton, most notably at level guard and with a serious resolution set to be made this summer time on restricted free agent Jabari Parker, however there’s clearly some high-level expertise there and so they hope Bud is the fitting coach to faucet into that and get them to play to their potential.
