ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported last week that the Bucks may decided on a coaching change from Mike Budenholzer should their playoff run fizzle. Budenholzer has been Milwaukee’s coach since 2018 and has a year left on his contract.

“They could have extended him early in the season or in the offseason. They chose not to. They were going to really ride this year out,” Wojnarowski said. “I don’t know if he has to come back and win it. … If it ends in a thud, it’s hard to imagine he’s back.”

Ham, 47, has assisted Budeholzer for the entire three seasons with the Bucks, and five years before that with the Hawks. He has also been an assistant with the Lakers and spent the 2010-11 season as head coach of the New Mexico Thunderbirds of the G League.

Ham spent eight seasons as a player in the NBA, winning a championship with the Pistons in 2004.

Budenholzer, 51, owns a 375-262 record in eight seasons overall. The Bucks are currently tied with the Nets at 2-games apiece in their Eastern Conference semifinal series.
