ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the team has reached an agreement to hire former Atlanta Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer.

Rightly or wrongly, Eric Bledsoe's first season with the Milwaukee Bucks is going to be remembered for the weird way it finished.

Budenohlzer met with Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton earlier on Wednesday. That's according to league sources.

Budenholzer and the Hawks "mutually agreed" to part ways in April.

He even questioned her during his recent visit to Atlanta, where the Cookie character was shooting her new film What Men Want . Henson , 47, recently said yes to a marriage proposal from boyfriend Kelvin Hayden , 34, former National Football League star.

Budenholzer was also a candidate for jobs with the Toronto Raptors, Phoenix Suns and New York Knicks. They're hoping that Budenholzer will be able to take them to the next level.

During Budenholzer's five years as the head coach of the Hawks, he put together a 213-197 record. The biggest criticism of former coach, Jason Kidd, was that his system was overly aggressive on defense and didn't fit today's era of basketball.

Mike Budenholzer is trading one Eastern Conference team for another. He comes from the Gregg Popovich coaching tree, which is a good sign for the Bucks.

If the Bucks defense improves under Budenholzer, like everybody expects it to, then Milwaukee is going to be a strong challenger in the East. Despite Antetokounmpo finishing fourth in the league in Defensive Box Plus-Minus a year ago, the Bucks' defense ranked in the bottom half of the league in points allowed per 100 possessions. There's a lot you can do with the talent Milwaukee possesses.
