Report: Bucks to interview David Fizdale, Mike Budenholzer, Steve Clifford, Monty Williams, David Blatt
The Knicks apparently are moving toward hiring former Grizzlies coach David Fizdale.
They might have competition.
Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:
Sources: Milwaukee embarking on a coaching search with a list of candidates that includes several former head coaches: Steve Clifford, Mike Budenholzer, Monty Williams, David Fizdale and David Blatt. Bucks plan to interview those coaches -- and possibly several more.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) May 3, 2018
This is a strong list, befitting a good job.
Giannis Antetokounmpo is a 23-year-old superstar. Khris Middleton is a borderline All-Star. Eric Bledsoe is a strong starter. Tony Snell, when confident, is an ideal role player. Jabari Parker is talented.
The Bucks are ripe for a new coach to come in and look really good while helping this team reach the next level.
Will Milwaukee have its pick of candidates? New York offers a bigger market and maybe, relatedly, a higher salary. But the Bucks present an alluring basketball situation.
