Mike Budenholzer agrees to become head coach of Milwaukee Bucks

Mike Budenholzer agrees to become head coach of Milwaukee Bucks

Mike Budenholzer has reached an agreement to become the Milwaukee Bucks coach, league sources tell ESPN.

After reports surfaced earlier today of Mike Budenholzer meeting with Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo, Milwaukee has reportedly made Budenholzer the team's new coach.

This is a developing story.

The Bucks have found their new head coach.

Before the split, the Hawks gave Budenholzer permission to speak with the Phoenix Suns and New York Knicks for their coaching openings.

"It is a relatively unprecedented move in a head coaching search, but it clearly reflects the Bucks determination to make Antetokounmpo and Middleton feel a part of the process".

He said Khaleda was shown arrested in the cases filed with different police stations in Cumilla, Dhaka , Narail and Panchagarh. The High Court on Mar 12 granted an interim bail to Khaleda who was jailed on Feb 8 after a trial court convicted her.

Milwaukee fired coach Jason Kidd on January 22 after losing four of five games despite an early season trade for Eric Bledsoe and an MVP-quality season from Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Considered one of the NBA's best tacticians. Budenholzer is inheriting a very talented roster headlined by "The Greek Freak".

Wojnarowski's report also indicated a finalized contract is expected to be completed "soon". Milwaukee will need to upgrade their front-court this offseason, but there is plenty of talent for Budenholzer to work with. The 2014-15 campaign featured a 60-22 record where the team earned the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference along with a trip to the conference finals.

Prior to that, Budenholzer worked as an assistant coach for the Spurs for 17 years. Budenholzer won four championships as an assistant with the Spurs.

Expect to see the Bucks end up looking very good for their decision to hire Budenholzer.
