Mike Budenholzer agrees to become head coach of Milwaukee Bucks

According to ESPN, Milwaukee has agreed to terms with former Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer to take over as the leading man for the Bucks.

The Bucks finished seventh in the East this season at 44-38 and lost to the Celtics in seven games in the first round of the playoffs to end their season.

The Toronto Raptors met with Budenholzer on Monday, but they never extended an offer, league sources said.

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

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.

Such individuals were also more likely to feel unhappy, lonely and unsatisfied with their health, and have slower reaction times. The study can not say conclusively that body clock disturbances are what caused the mental risk, instead of the other way round.

Mike Budenholzer was relieved of his head coaching duties by the Atlanta Hawks earlier this offseason.

What Budenholzer brings to the Bucks is a modern system.

But the Bucks just need a good coach.

It looks like the Milwaukee Bucks got their prime target. Giannis Antetokounmpo already raises the Bucks' ceiling on his own, but Milwaukee's average defense held the team back.

In Atlanta, Budenzholer ran an offense that featured a flurry of 3-point shooters and a rim-attacking point guard. Budenholzer's philosophies, which call for ball movement, defensive energy and cohesiveness from his teams, should help Antetokounmpo and Milwaukee improve quickly. It's going to work, and it's going to unleash the Greek Freak to a whole new level.
