The ownership of the Milwaukee Bucks is meeting with Mike Budenholzer and Ettore Messina about their head coaching position on Tuesday. Mr. Miller has expressed interest in potentially becoming the head coach for the Toronto Raptors, TMZ Sports reports.

Milwaukee fired Jason Kidd in January after a 23-22 start. 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.

While it's unsurprising Toronto is eyeing Budenholzer, the move would be somewhat curious.

With a prior report from Velazquez indicating the team's plan was to have three or four candidates advance to this point, it's possible the Bucks have another coach or two under consideration at this final stage.

Budenholzer, a Spurs assistant from 1996-2013, was 2015-16 NBA Coach of the Year but was released from his contract with the Atlanta Hawks at the end of this regular season to pursue other opportunities. Milwaukee has interviews set this week with former Cleveland Cavaliers coach David Blatt and San Antonio Spurs assistant coach Becky Hammon.

Messina has been on the coach staff of Gregg Popovich since 2014.

Having reached the point where owners are now involved in the process, it seems as if a final decision on the identity of the new head coach may be in the very near future for the Bucks.
