According to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Milwaukee Bucks have officially hired Budenholzer to be their new head coach.

Expect top assistant Darvin Ham to join Mike Budenholzer in Milwaukee, per sources, along with most, if not all, of his former Hawks coaching staff.

Budenholzer, who previously had coached the Atlanta Hawks, met with Bucks ownership on Tuesday in NY.

Budenholzer will sign a four-year deal with the Bucks, after spending the past five seasons with the Atlanta Hawks. However, they seemingly have taken a step forward on Wednesday.

"Giannis Antetokounmpo and Mike Budenholzer had breakfast today in Milwaukee, league sources say". 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.

Listen as Steve and Jeffrey Gorman explain why Budenholzer will be a ideal fit for the Milwaukee Bucks and the impact he will have on the Eastern Conference for years to come. Atlanta lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the conference finals that year. Jeff Hornacek (Knicks), Frank Vogel (Magic) and Steve Clifford (Hornets) have also gotten the boot.




Budenholzer was also reportedly still in talks with the Toronto Raptors, who had targeted him as a replacement for the recently fired Dwane Casey.

He previously worked under Gregg Popovich as an assistant coach for the San Antonio Spurs.

Budenholzer and the Atlanta Hawks parted ways in April, after the two sides could no longer see a path together with the franchise's rebuilding plans and new management structure.

Budenholzer flew to Milwaukee for the Wednesday morning meeting with the Bucks players.
