Wojnarowski noted Budenholzer is "considered one of the NBA's best tacticians".

Budenholzer went 213-197 in five seasons with the Hawks, leading them to a franchise-record 60 wins and the Eastern Conference finals in 2015. Budenholzer was voted as the NBA Coach of the Year that season.

The choice by the Bucks, confirmed by The Washington Post's Tim Bontemps, ends a two-week process in which the team reportedly narrowed down its list of preferred candidates to Budenholzer and San Antonio Spurs assistant Ettore Messina. The Bucks also have the No. 17 pick in the draft.
