Giannis Antetokounmpo Reportedly Makes Choice for Next Bucks Head Coach Clear
Mike Budenholzer was recently fired as head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks. This means that the Bucks need a new head coach and Giannis Antetokounmpo has reportedly made his choice clear.
According to John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports, Giannis wants Adrian Griffin.
Griffin, who played 447 games in the NBA from 1999 to 2008, is currently an assistant with the Toronto Raptors.
“I think that Griffin is gonna get the Milwaukee job because Giannis wants him,” Gambadoro said. “There’s like a butting of the heads in Milwaukee, from what I’m being told, because you’ve got the owner, you’ve got the GM, you’ve got Giannis. They wanna keep Giannis and they wanna keep Giannis happy. Adrian Griffin is his choice. That’s who he wants.”
Regarded as a coach with a strong emphasis on defense, Griffin has the capability to hold his players responsible. At the age of 48, he is currently seeking his first head coaching job.
This season, the Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo maintained an impressive average of 31.1 points, 11.8 rebounds, and 5.7 assists, with a field goal percentage of 55.3% and a free-throw percentage of 64.5%. Games 2 and 3 were missed by the seven-time All-Star after he injured his back in Game 1 of the Heat series.
