Former Pacers head coach Nate McMillan, who was fired despite reaching the playoffs in each of his five seasons in Indiana, is receiving consideration from the Hawks for head coach Lloyd Pierce's staff heading in the 2020-21 season.
McMillan is obviously still highly regarded in the NBA coaching and front office community. There's no question that he had more success than failure with the Pacers, especially given their payroll limitations. He is known for getting the best out of his players and would likely be a solid fit for any NBA coaching staff. The Hawks have an extremely young core so a McMillan hire seems logical. At any rate, McMillan seems increasingly likely to find himself right back on the NBA sidelines next season.
