Nate McMillan, who had one year left on his deal, has agreed on a contract extension with the Pacers, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
McMillan has been criticized for the offense he runs but the Pacers clearly reward him for maximizing the organization's roster despite several stretches of significant injuries in recent years. He currently has the Pacers positioned as the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference playoff chase, while he is likely to be without All-Star forward Domantas Sabonis, who left the NBA's bubble to rehab a plantar fasciitis injury in his left foot. In 16 seasons with the Seattle Sonics, the Blazers and the Pacers, McMillan is 665-590 and 20-32 in nine trips to the playoffs, while he is one of 26 coaches to win 600 NBA games.
