Mike Budenholzer will reportedly be the Milwaukee Bucks' next head coach after spending the previous five years with the Atlanta Hawks, according to ESPN.com's Adrian Wojnarowski. Budenholzer's philosophies, which call for ball movement, defensive energy and cohesiveness from his teams, should help Antetokounmpo and Milwaukee improve quickly.
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. He had the Hawks to the point of contention in the Eastern Conference just a few short years ago. In his fifth season, the Greek Freak has developed into a two-way monster and one of the top 10 players in the National Basketball Association.More news: Verstappen fastest on 1st day of mid-season F1 tests
The Bucks fired head coach Jason Kidd during the year. Milwaukee will need to upgrade their front-court this offseason, but there is plenty of talent for Budenholzer to work with. He won four NBA Championships during his time with the Spurs. He comes from the Gregg Popovich coaching tree, which is a good sign for the Bucks. James Borrego was also in the running for the position before signing to become the head coach of the Charlotte Hornets.
Having built teams separately centered around success on both ends of the court, Budenholzer is an intriguing fit for the Bucks.More news: Preakness Stakes 2018: Justify prohibitive favorite in morning-line odds
