He reports that the Bucks will "re-engage" with Budenholzer, while the Raptors will hold a first conversation with him.

According to ESPN, the team has its eyes set on possibly hiring Mike Budenholzer, who was the former coach of the Atlanta Hawks.

Hammon, the NBA's first-ever full-time female assistant coach, whose only National Basketball Association experience has come the last four years as an assistant with the San Antonio Spurs, would become the first female National Basketball Association head coach.

With general manager Jon Horst and his front office team having completed an extensive first round of interviews that included Budenholzer, Messina, Becky Hammon, Steve Clifford, Monty Williams, David Blatt, Joe Prunty and Jay Larranaga at a minimum, the Bucks' plan was said to be centered around the owners then meeting with finalists in the second round of interviews. The Cavs went on to win the National Basketball Association title and Blatt's replacement, Tyronn Lue, still holds that job.


The NBA team was annihilated by the Cleveland Cavaliers during the Eastern Conference semifinals, and soon after, their coach Dwayne Casey was sacked.

Budenholzer has been an National Basketball Association head coach for five seasons, and while Messina has yet to coach permanently from the top seat in the U.S., he's one of the most decorated head coaches in EuroLeague history. But, after topping the Wizards in six games in their opening series, the Raptors were swept by Cleveland. Popovich has guided five National Basketball Association titles, won Coach of the Year three times and is regarded as one of the most astute and respected minds in the league.

Milwaukee fired Jason Kidd in January after a 23-22 start.

Prior to being named head coach with the Hawks, the 48-year-old captured four National Basketball Association championships as an assistant coach under Gregg Popovich with the San Antonio Spurs.
