The Bucks are searching for a coach after firing Mike Budenholzer due to the top-seeded club being upset by the Miami Heat in the first round of this season’s playoffs. Budenholzer coached the Bucks to the 2020-21 NBA championship and went 271-120 in five seasons.

Atkinson accepted the Charlotte Hornets’ coaching position after last season before later changing his mind and sticking with the Warriors.

Other candidates, according to ESPN, are former Charlotte Hornets coach James Borrego and current Bucks associate head coach Charles Lee.

Borrego, 45, went 138-163 in four seasons as coach of the Hornets before being let go after the 2021-22 season.

Lee, 38, reportedly is a finalist for the Detroit Pistons’ opening. He joined the Bucks along with Budenholzer prior to the 2018-19 season.
