The work has started for both Adrian Griffin and the Milwaukee Bucks.
Sources told Shams Charania and Eric Nehm of The Athletic that Griffin finally inked his multi-year contract which will pay him roughly $4 million annually.
Though he is not yet being announced in a formal introductory press conference, Griffin is reportedly around already in various meetings and draft workouts of Milwaukee.
Both Griffin and the Bucks brass are now working to surround the neophyte top mentor with veteran assistant coaching support. Per sources, former Charlotte Hornets head coach James Borrego and ex-Portland Trail Blazers strategist Terry Stotts are potential candidates for Griffin’s staff.
Earlier this week, the Bucks finally replaced Mike Budenholzer and tapped Griffin – in courtesy of Giannis Antetokounmpo’s endorsement – to become their newest head coach.
Griffin, a former league player, served as an assistant under Nick Nurse in the Toronto Raptors for the last five years.
