Budenholzer has reached an agreement with the Milwaukee Bucks to become their new head coach, as first reported by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

If the Bucks want to keep Giannis Antetokounmpo around long-term, they need a guy like Budenholzer to come in and help him compete for a championship.

This is a developing story.

Budenholzer and the Atlanta Hawks parted ways this offseason.

The Bucks have found their new head coach.

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. Budenholzer was voted as the NBA Coach of the Year that season. Budenholzer was in the running for the Knicks and Raptors jobs in addition to Milwaukee's vacancy. In his fifth season, the Greek Freak has developed into a two-way monster and one of the top 10 players in the National Basketball Association. Guard Khris Middleton was also reportedly at that breakfast. He won four National Basketball Association titles as a member of Spurs' staff.

Expect to see the Bucks end up looking very good for their decision to hire Budenholzer.

Budenholzer spent 17 years as an assistant under Spurs coach Gregg Popovich before his hiring in Atlanta in 2013. 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.
