The Indiana Pacers have wanted to play at a faster pace over the past year and made a coaching change this offseason replacing Frank Vogel with Nate McMillan.
McMillan's teams as head coach have played at a slow pace, ranking 24th, 27th, 15th, 27th, 28th, 29th, 29th, 30th, 30th, and 30th.
Since 2001, there have been 95 coaches to coach an NBA team for at least one full season. McMillan ranks 92nd in terms of pace. The only teams that have played slower have been Kevin O’Neill’s Raptors, Michael Curry’s Pistons, and Mike Fratello’s Grizzlies.
