Bucks hire former Atlanta head coach Mike Budenholzer as new head coach

This, after he had a second interview with Bucks ownership in NY.

Mike Budenholzer has agreed to become head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks.

The 48-year-old's time in Atlanta was widely considered to be successful, but as ownership looked to initiate a full rebuild, Budenholzer was eager to move on for another opportunity with a greater readiness to be competitive.

The Turkish government has fulminated about Zarrab and Atilla's cases, labeling them an attempted "judicial coup" on Erdogan. The judge underlined that Zarrab convincingly explained during the trial the involvement of Atilla in the entire scheme.

Budenholzer has experience as an National Basketball Association head coach, having last coached the Atlanta Hawks from 2013-18.

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.

Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times then reported the coach was one of the favorites to fill the Bucks opening, while Marc Stein of the New York Times noted the Raptors' "strong interest" in him. 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. He won the NBA's Coach of the Year award back in 2014-15.

Alongside Antetokounmpo, the Bucks have players like Eric Bledsoe, Khris Middleton, Malcolm Brogdon, and Thon Maker. In that season, he led the Hawks to a 60-22 record and they were the best team in the Eastern Conference that season before coming up short in the playoffs.

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

Expect to see the Bucks end up looking very good for their decision to hire Budenholzer. The Bucks also have the No. 17 pick in the draft.
