Several league sources believe the Bucks and their New York-based ownership will pounce and enter “The Bud Bowl.’’

Milwaukee was eliminated in Game 7 of their first-round series Saturday. At least interim coach Joe Prunty wasn’t fired upon landing at Milwaukee’s airport.

While The Post reported [Mike] Budenholzer considered the Knicks his “top choice,’’ that was before Milwaukee’s situation crystallized.

One person familiar with the situation said Budenholzer, who interviewed with the Knicks last week, recently talked of preparing a presentation for the Bucks and Knicks.
