With Brian Shaw finally landing his first head coaching job with the Nuggets this week, it opened the window for someone to join Frank Vogel's assistant coaching staff to fill the void. Nate McMillan was finalizing an agreement to become lead assistant with the Pacers, Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski first reported.
McMillan took some time away from the bench after stints in Seattle and Portland. The Pacers already tooled up with Larry Bird cpming back to run the basketball operations, now adding more NBA coaching experience to its staff.
McMillan might not be with the Pacers for long if the next off-season coaching carousel is anything like it's been in 2013.
