After several years together, the Milwaukee Bucks and Mike Budenholzer went their separate ways this past off-season, kicking off what has been a turbulent coaching carousel.

Though he's no longer on the sidelines, Budenholzer is still helping out the Bucks, providing housing for one of Milwaukee's newcomers. On the latest episode of the "Pat Bev Pod," hosted by new Bucks guard Patrick Beverley, the veteran revealed that Budenholzer is letting him rent out his place for the time being.

"He's allowing me to rent it out, so shoutout to coach Budenholzer. I don't know if you watch the pod, but your spot is phenomenal. It's phenomenal."

Budenholzer never coached Beverley in Milwaukee or elsewhere, but it's nice to hear that he's still willing to help him out. Of course, Beverley has only been in Milwaukee for a few weeks, coming over at the 2024 NBA Trade Deadline in a deal with the Philadelphia 76ers. Much like with his new place, Beverley is starting to settle in with the Bucks.

While he's not putting up the flashiest numbers in his seven appearances with the Bucks - averaging 4.1 points, 2.7 assists and two rebounds per contest - Beverley has been a welcome addition to this roster. The guard has provided vocal leadership and pesky defense, two attributes this team needed more of at the deadline.

On that same episode of the podcast, Beverley talked about how the team returned from the All-Star break with some intensity, having turned up the dial in practice right from the jump. Since returning, they are a perfect 3-0, with victories against the Minnesota Timberwolves, Philadelphia 76ers and Charlotte Hornets.

There's still work to be done, but there's no denying that the Bucks have looked much better lately, and Patrick Beverley's arrival has undoubtedly played a part in that. Once again, special thanks to Budenholzer for helping the guard out. Though he's not coaching right now, Budenholzer is bound to be back on the sidelines again somewhere next season.
