Apparently if you want a coaching job in Milwaukee, the best way to get it is be an assistant in Houston.

The Bucks have interviewed their second Rockets head coach, J.B. Bickerstaff, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. The Bucks had already interviewed Rockets lead assistant Kelvin Sampson.

Yes, Bickerstaff, as in son of the Bernie Bickerstaff, the long-time NBA head and assistant coach who was recently released by the Lakers.

The younger Bickerstaff has also interviewed in Detroit (where Nate McMillan is still considered a front-runner). He is expected to get looked at for the Suns job by new GM there Ryan McDonough.

The Bucks have interviewed a number of candidates and are reportedly interested in Brian Shaw of the Pacers and other assistants still busy with playoff teams.

    I get that teams like hiring the young dude (most of the time who has played some) who is supposed to grow with the locker room and give them someone to respect a la Mark Jackson/Doc Rivers. Still I think that’s a poor tactic in this case and I really just think the Bucks need a hard nosed old guy who can teach them some respect a bit better
