Just weeks after leaving one of the worst franchises in the National Basketball Association, former Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer is the top candidate for arguably the two best most attractive openings in the league. Joe Prunty coached the rest of the season on an interim basis as they team made the playoffs but were ousted by the Boston Celtics in the opening round. The Cavs went on to win the National Basketball Association title and Blatt's replacement, Tyronn Lue, still holds that job.
Budenholzer was at the helm of the Atlanta Hawks for five seasons, from 2013-18.
Prior to being named head coach with the Hawks, the 48-year-old captured four National Basketball Association championships as an assistant coach under Gregg Popovich with the San Antonio Spurs. He was initially named NBA Coach of the Year.
In 2014, he hired Hammon, who led the Spurs summer league team to the 2015 championship.
