The Indiana Pacers have fired Nate McMillan just a week after agreeing to a soft extension.
The Pacers had reworked the final season on McMillan's contract for 20-21 and added a team option for 21-22. The Pacers were subsequently swept by the Miami Heat.
McMillan was head coach of the Pacers for four season and complied a 183-136 record.
Mike D'Antoni will be a candidate for the Pacers should he become available.
"On behalf of the SImon family and the Pacers organization, I'd like to thank Nate for his years with the team," Pacers president of basketball operations Kevin Pritchard said in a statement. "This was a very hard decision for us to make; but we feel it's in the best interest of the organization to move in a different direction. Nate and I have been through the good times and the bad times; and it was an honor to work with him for those 11 years (in Indiana and Portland)."
