Mike Budenholzer mulled for Knicks job headed to Bucks

Mike Budenholzer has reportedly reached an agreement to become the Milwaukee Bucks head coach.

Milwaukee has officially hired Mike Budenholzer to be their new head coach.

Budenholzer and the Atlanta Hawks mutually agreed to part ways just a few weeks ago.

This visit marked the second time the Bucks have met with the former Spurs assistant.

Adrian Wojnarowski first reported the news, and made it clear Budenholzer was the prime candidate for the Bucks job after his divorce from the Hawks. Milwaukee started out the year with Jason Kidd at head coach, but he was sacked following a 23-22 start to his fourth season with the team.

Lachlan Murdoch, not James, will lead new Fox company
However, Comcast has let it be known that it is strongly considering mounting a rival bid for the 21st Century Fox assets. As expected, the new-model Fox Broadcasting Co. will emphasize live sports and events.

Budenholzer, who parted ways with Atlanta last month, met with Bucks ownership on Tuesday in NY.

Considered one of the NBA's best tacticians. 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. 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.

Prior to taking the leap into head coaching with Atlanta, Budenholzer had been a long-time member of Gregg Popovoch's staff in San Antonio.

Budenholzer led Atlanta to a 60-win season during the 2014-15 season. He won four NBA Championships during his time with the Spurs.
