Darvin Ham of the Milwaukee Bucks has interviewed for the Washington Wizards head coaching vacancy.

Milwaukee Bucks assistant coach Darvin Ham has interviewed for the Washington Wizards head coach vacancy, according to Fred Katz and David Aldridge of The Athletic.

Ham has been an assistant in Milwaukee since the 2018-19 season on Mike Budenholzer’s staff. He also worked with Budenholzer since 2013 with the Atlanta Hawks. Ham also has ties with the Wizards, where he played for them in the 1997-98 season during his eight-year NBA career.

On June 4, our own Matt Modderno wrote that Ham, in addition to Philadelphia 76ers assistant coach Sam Cassell, should be strongly considered for the head coaching position in Washington if then-head coach Scott Brooks was not brought back next season. And as you are all aware, Brooks wasn’t brought back.

Katz has also mentioned on his podcast, “Wizards After Dark,” that Ham, Cassell, or anyone else already mentioned, aren’t the only people considered for the head coach position. So, as we mentioned before this past week, this is a fluid process, especially the first round of interviews.

Would you feel happy to see Ham in D.C. if he were hired? Let us know in the comments below.
