A short blurb at ESPN Insider in a larger overview of the NBA’s coaching vacancies identifies Spurs assistant coach as the favorite to replace Larry Drew in Atlanta.

From Chris Broussard:

Many league insiders believe Spurs longtime assistant Mike Budenholzer will be Danny Ferry’s choice in Atlanta.

Not much to it, obviously, but it certainly makes sense considering Hawks general manager Danny Ferry’s strong ties to the Spurs. And if you’re trying to duplicate their success, you could do worse than prying Gregg Popovich’s No. 1 assistant away to head up your team. (Outside of cloning Tim Duncan, of course.)
