Mike Budenholzer Agrees To Become Head Coach Of Bucks

Former Atlanta Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer has agreed to a deal in principle to become the Milwaukee Bucks coach, according to media reports.

Adrian Wojnarowski was the first to report the news of Budenholzer accepting the Bucks job.

This is a developing story.

ITC net profit up 10% in Q4
Total income of the company dipped marginally 0.70 per cent to Rs 11,886.02 crore in Q4FY18 over Rs 11969.66 crore in Q4FY17. Pre-tax profit from other consumer goods jumped to Rs91.21 crore from Rs55.56 crore in the same period a year ago.


Budenholzer was most recently the head coach of the Atlanta Hawks, with his five-year tenure with the team coming to an end at the close of the season.

General view of the Cleveland Cavaliers playing against the Milwaukee Bucks at Bradley Center on November 3, 2012 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. 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 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. Budenholzer is inheriting a very talented roster headlined by "The Greek Freak". He won the NBA's Coach of the Year award back in 2014-15.

He previously worked under Gregg Popovich as an assistant coach for the San Antonio Spurs. The Bucks also have the No. 17 pick in the draft. Messina could still be summoned to Milwaukee for a meeting with the players too, league sources said, but that will largely be determined on the Bucks next step with Budenholzer.
