Mike Budenholzer met with Suns’ management and ownership on Monday and Tuesday, exploring the possibility of him becoming their next head coach.
The Suns are considering several head-coaching candidates, including Steve Clifford, Frank Vogel, David Fizdale and David Blatt but have largely been focused on getting to know Budenholzer in recent days. Even thought he’s still under contact with the Hawks for two more years, it seems that both him and the team are open to ending their partnership. There are still several hurdles that would need to be cleared before that could happen of course, including the Suns making an offer and agreeing to a contract and possible compensation to Atlanta.
