The  Milwaukee Bucks are down to three finalists for their head coach position, Charles F. Gardner of the Journal Sentinel reports.

The three finalists are Los Angeles Lakers assistant coach Steve Clifford, Atlanta Hawks head coach Larry Drew and Houston Rockets assistant coach Kelvin Sampson.

Clifford is set to meet with Milwaukee for the second time on Tuesday while Drew and Sampson have their second interviews on Wednesday.

The Bucks could announce their head coach later this week.

Milwaukee finished with 38-44 record which earned them eighth seed in the Eastern Conference, but the Bucks were swept in four games by Miami in the first-round.
