Budenholzer spent 17 seasons working as an assistant with San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich.

Head coach Mike Budenholzer of the Atlanta Hawks looks on from the bench while playing the Detroit Pistons at Little Caesars Arena on November 10, 2017 in Detroit, Michigan.

Budenholzer met over breakfast with Bucks forwards Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton on Wednesday morning before the team extended a formal offer, according to ESPN. He agreed to terms later in the afternoon.

With Antetokounmpo leading a young, but super-talented team; Bucks fans will be hoping Budenholzer can get the best out of a roster that has often been misused.

The Bucks had previously been linked to the likes of Ettore Messina, Steve Clifford, Monty Williams and Becky Hammon. Budenholzer was named the National Basketball Association coach of the year in 2015, when he led the Hawks to a franchise-record 60 wins and an appearance in the Eastern Conference finals. The Bucks beat the Raptors to the punch on the hiring, as Masai Ujiri's bunch had been interested in Budenholzer as well. In four seasons under Van Gundy, Detroit missed the playoffs three times, including this season when it finished 39-43.

The Bucks have the talent to compete for a top seed if they play a style that unlocks their freakishness.

What Budenholzer brings to the Bucks is a modern system. Kidd had been surrounded in scrutiny started with the moment he took over as coach of the Bucks. Critics questioned his on the court tactics and his ability to manage the team.

The Milwaukee Bucks have found their man.
