Where might former Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle go: 1. Milwaukee
While the Bucks have yet to fire current head coach Mike Budenholzer, he is on the hot seat. If Milwaukee loses to the Nets in the second round of the playoffs, coach Bud is expected to be let go. If that were to happen, this is the most likely place for Carlisle to end up.
Giannis Antetokounmpo is a two-time MVP and is widely considered to be a top-three talent in the league. It’s every coach’s dream to work with a player like Giannis. He is a dominant force in the paint and can guard any position on the basketball court.
Alongside Antetokounmpo, the Bucks have Jrue Holiday and Khris Middleton. Holiday is an All-Defensive player who can lock up any team’s opposing guards. While Middleton is a fantastic offensive player who can score from anywhere on the court. Milwaukee has championship aspirations and figures to be in the hunt next season.
This should be Rick Carlisle’s ideal landing spot if the Milwaukee Bucks decide to move on from head coach Mike Budenholzer. Will the Bucks consider Carlisle to be their top candidate? Stay tuned to The Smoking Cuban for more on Rick Carlisle and his next move.
