Each year, the NBA’s 30 head coaches all cast their vote to determine who will be the NBCA’s coach of the year. Unlike the other awards within the NBA, the NBCA is the only award exclusively voted by a coaches peers.
This year, two head coaches shared the spoils.
The other coaches to receive votes were: Taylor Jenkins, Nate McMillan, Brad Stevens, Nick Nurse, Frank Vogel and Erik Spoelstra.
With Budenholzer’s Milwaukee Bucks leading the league for a second straight year, and Billy Donovan leading his Oklahoma City Thunder team to the playoff’s despite losing All-Star guard Russell Westbrook, it’s clear why these coaches will be sharing the award.
