Best Potential Candidates to Replace Jim Boylan as Milwaukee Bucks Coach

Add the Milwaukee Bucks to the growing list of NBA teams needing to fill a coaching vacancy this summer.

And add Scott Skiles to the list of people that now-former Bucks interim coach Jim Boylan needs to avoid.

Boylan was ousted closing the season with a 22-28 record in relief of Skiles, who agreed to part ways with the franchise earlier this season. Boylan was also unable to secure a permanent position after serving as interim coach of the Chicago Bulls when Skiles was let go there during the 2007-08 season.

Don't be shocked if Milwaukee aims high on the coaching market. Skiles was brought in to bring some stability to the Bucks sideline in 2007 after Terry Porter, Terry Stotts and Larry Krystkowiak were each unable to man the position for longer than two seasons.

But in order to attract any notable names, the Bucks may need to first show their hand in free agency. Monta Ellis, Brandon Jennings, J.J. Redick and Mike Dunleavy could all potentially hit the market over the summer.

Of course, those players might also be hesitant to stick around without at least some semblance of certainty regarding who will be tasked with leading the franchise.

Needless to say, Milwaukee general manager John Hammond has some massive decisions to make in the coming weeks.

But in an effort to make his life a little easier, here are seven names worth consideration.
