Mike Budenholzer, mulled for Knicks job, headed to Bucks

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

Under Budenholzer, the Hawks were known for being one of the most consistent teams in the league before the organization made a decision to bottom out and play for the lottery last season.

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

He now becomes the 16th head coach in Bucks history, and takes over for Joe Prunty, the interim coach forced to step in when the Bucks fired Jason Kidd.

League sources told Wojnarowski that Budenholzer, the former Hawks head coach, had always been the top target of Bucks GM Jon Horst.

To start with, we discussed immediate reactions to the news and what the Bucks should learn from hiring a different kind of coach than what they've been used to, and Budenholzer, in particular.

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. And Giannis Antetokounmpo is too much of a talent to pass up.

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

If you have any thoughts about the podcast, Budenholzer's appointment, or anything else, let us hear them!

Wojnarowski noted Budenholzer is "considered one of the NBA's best tacticians".

Budenholzer led Atlanta to a 60-win season during the 2014-15 season. In four seasons under Van Gundy, Detroit missed the playoffs three times, including this season when it finished 39-43. The former San Antonio Spurs assistant parted ways with Atlanta after a disappointing yet predictable 24-58 season.
