With the Milwaukee Bucks coaching vacancy open, they, of course, have their list of names that they are considering to fill that position with.

Per that tweet from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Becky Hammon is one of the names on that list.

She was previously a candidate for the men’s basketball job at Colorado State and being part of the Gregg Popovich tree with the San Antonio Spurs certainly is a big help for her candidacy.
Other names are on the Bucks’ list as well including Steve Clifford who was recently fired from his job with the Charlotte Hornets and Mike Budenholzer who departed from the Atlanta Hawks’ head coaching position.

Along with a considerably sizable support base on social media, Hammon’s candidacy also has another notable backer.

She went undrafted and had a very successful WNBA career as an undersized guard. She knows the game. In the end, it’s basketball. You’re going to learn a lot as you go along. She has basketball IQ, she’s a junkie. I think she can bring a lot.

It will be great if one day she will be a head coach. Maybe you have to train men a little different and you have to be a little harder on them, but in the end as long as you know your stuff, they’re going to respect you. And she knows her stuff.
