The news keeps flowing out of the Fieldhouse on NBA Draft day, as Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that the Pacers are about to add Nate McMillan to the coaching staff.
Nate McMillan is finalizing an agreement to become the top assistant coach with the Indiana Pacers, league sources tell Y! Sports.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) June 27, 2013
As he did by pursuing Brian Shaw, Frank Vogel shows he is willing to take a crack at the top available coaching candidates and once again lands his man. McMillan has head coaching experience with the Seattle Supersonics and Portland Trail Blazers and will be a strong addition to the Pacers bench. It also shows the confidence Vogel has in the program he's put together in Indy that he is willing to bring in an experienced coaching voice with no worries about losing his grip on the team or the direction they are headed.
The Pacers also have to replace assistant coach Jim Boylen who announced yesterday that he will work on the bench for the San Antonio Spurs next year.
