After Adrian Griffin’s shocking exit from Milwaukee, the Bucks are looking for a new head coach. According to reports, former Champion Doc Rivers is their primary target for the position. Doc has 24 years of coaching experience and led the Boston Celtics to a Championship in 2008. Rivers’ most recent head coaching job was for the Philadelphia 76ers from 2020 to 2023. Giannis Antetokounmpo and Co. could use the playoff experience of Rivers to make another run for the title.

Although the Bucks are 2nd in the East, they need to improve in some aspects. The Bucks are 2nd in the league in offensive rating this season after the addition of Damian Lillard. But they are one of the worst defensive teams in the league since parting ways with Jrue Holiday. Giannis Antetokounmpo and Co. are 21st in the league in defensive rating. And that can prove costly in the playoffs, where the offense slows down.
