>>Coach Bud Not In Trouble After 2 Disappointing Postseasons
(Milwaukee, WI) — The Milwaukee Bucks will hang on to coach Mike Budenholzer, despite some calls for his firing. TheAthletic-dot-com is reporting coach Bud’s job is safe. In his first two seasons, his Bucks have had the best record in the NBA. Failures in the playoffs have brought up some questions, but general manager Jon Horst and the Milwaukee management team still have confidence in him. To remain in their good graces, he will have to come up with a solution to the “wall strategy” opponents have used to slow down Giannis Antetokounmpo.
