Bu­den­holzer off the mar­ket, join­ing Bucks

Edmonton Journal - - SPORTS -

Mike Bu­den­holzer, one of the top can­di­dates for Toronto’s va­cant head coach­ing job, will in­stead coach the Mil­wau­kee Bucks on a forth­com­ing four-year deal, ac­cord­ing to ESPN. Bu­den­holzer re­port­edly agreed after hav­ing a meet­ing with Bucks star Gian­nis An­te­tok­oun­mpo and team­mate Khris Middleton. Bu­den­holzer, who led the At­lanta Hawks to 60 wins and the con­fer­ence fi­nal on the way to coach of the year hon­ours in 2016, left the Hawks after a 24-58 record this sea­son. The Rap­tors re­port­edly met with Bu­den­holzer Mon­day, but did not make an of­fer. As­sis­tant coach Nick Nurse is con­sid­ered the front-run­ner to suc­ceed Dwane Casey, though Jerry Stack­house and Rex Kalamian will also get con­sid­er­a­tion, along with out­side can­di­dates.
