According to Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski, the Milwaukee Bucks have cut their head coaching search down to three.
The Milwaukee Bucks are bringing back three candidates to interview a second time for the franchise’s head coaching job, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
Drew, of course, coached the Atlanta Hawks this season and while still under contract for a few more weeks, is not expected to be retained by the franchise.
Los Angeles Lakers assistant coach Steve Clifford has been one of the most in-demand names for open vacancies, interviewing for a handful of potential head coaching opportunities since the Lakers’ ousting in the playoffs while Rockets assistant Kelvin Sampson has also found his name on quite a few short lists as well.
Sampson could have a small in with the Bucks franchise as he’s not only a former assistant coach with the organization, but also a favorite of guard Brandon Jennings, who let his feelings on Sampson be known on Instagram recently:
This my guy for Life. He needs to be a Head Coach in the NBA.
