Atlanta Hawks coach Larry Drew will interview for the Milwaukee Bucks vacant coaching position Monday, a league source confirmed Friday.

And it's a very strange twist to have a currently employed NBA coach interviewing with another team.

But that's the agreement reached by Hawks management with Drew, who is under contract through June 30.

Atlanta general manager Danny Ferry and Drew met this week and came to an agreement to allow the coach to interview for other open jobs in the league.

It's possible Drew could remain with the Hawks, but it seems more likely he will move on and Atlanta will hire a new coach.

Drew has worked for the Hawks for the last nine years, first as an assistant under Mike Woodson for six years and the last three years as head coach.

The Hawks went 128-102 under Drew in the regular season and 10-14 in the playoffs, making the postseason in all three years.

Atlanta was seeded sixth in the Eastern Conference playoffs this season and lost to Indiana, 4-2, in the first round.

The Hawks traded shooting guard Joe Johnson to Brooklyn before the season but remained highly competitive behind forwards Josh Smith and Al Horford and point guard Jeff Teague. They swept the four-game series from the Bucks.

Drew, 55, is a native of Kansas City, Kan., and played collegiately at Missouri.

He played 11 years in the NBA with the Detroit Pistons, the Kansas City and Sacramento Kings, the Los Angeles Clippers and the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Bucks already have interviewed former Seattle and Portland coach Nate McMillan, current Houston assistants Kelvin Sampson and J.B. Bickerstaff, and Los Angeles Lakers assistant Steve Clifford.

Milwaukee officials also met recently with Hall-of-Famer Jerry Sloan in what was termed more "a visit" than an official interview.

The 71-year-old Sloan, who attended the NBA draft combine in Chicago this week, said he enjoyed the session at his farmhouse in downstate Illinois.
