The Hawks and Mike Budenholzer have agreed that he will not return to the head coaching role next season.
Bud has been connected to the Knicks and Suns, though he seems like a coach that's set to take on a competitive team rather than another rebuild. A former Coach of the Year, Budenholzer should be in high demand and we'd be shocked if he wasn't patrolling some team's sidelines come Opening Night. As for the Hawks, they're looking to go younger with their next hire. They boast an extremely young roster and don't seem tied to any more than one or two players in the long-term, so we'll see how their next coach influences personnel decisions.
