According to Yahoo! Sports Adrian Wojnarowski, San Antonio Spurs Assistant Coach Mike Budenholzer has emerged as a candidate for the Detroit Pistons Head Coaching job.
Pistons president Joe Dumars traveled to San Antonio on Wednesday and spent several hours meeting with Budenholzer, the top assistant to Gregg Popovich.
Budenholzer has been mentioned as being the leagues top assistant coaches and has mentioned before that he is willing to hear from offers from around the league. If he stays with San Antonio, he could possibly be a successor to one Gregg Popovich if he so does.
Budenholzer has been Popovich’s right hand man for 16 years, including the last five as his top assistant.
Pistons are searching for a replacement for Lawrence Frank, who was fired at season’s end in April.
