Bucks Down to Three in Coaching Search
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.
Atlanta Hawks coach Larry Drew, Houston Rockets assistant Kelvin Sampson and Los Angeles Lakers assistant Steve Clifford will meet with Bucks officials this week in Milwaukee, sources said.
Clifford will visit Milwaukee again on Tuesday, and Sampson and Drew on Wednesday, league sources said.
Bucks general manager John Hammond has been searching for a defensive-minded, hands-on coach and will choose among two of the most sought-after candidates of the spring. Both coaches already met with team owner Herb Kohl on their first visits to meet with Bucks officials.
