Mike Budenholzer agrees to become Bucks' next coach

Former Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer has agreed to become the new head coach for the Milwaukee Bucks. Ettore Messina also made the final round of interviews, but never had the luxury of meeting key players as Budenholzer did in Milwaukee on Wednesday morning. That marks the end of the Bucks head coaching search that began shortly after their Game 7 loss to the Boston Celtics in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs.
