Since taking over for Frank Vogel as the Indiana Pacers head coach back in 2016-17, Nate McMillan has turned the franchise around in a big way.

Dealing with a rebuilding squad this past season, McMillan led Indiana to a surprising 48-34 record and took Cleveland to seven games in the first round of the playoffs.

He’s now being rewarded for this hard work. According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the two sides are finalizing a contract extension.

Nathaniel McMillan (born August 3, 1964) is an American basketball coach and former player who is the head coach for the Indiana Pacers of the National Basketball Association (NBA).

Nate McMillan likely will remain in Indiana for the foreseeable future. The Pacers are finalizing a contract extension with their head coach, ESPN reported, citing unidentified league sources. In his second season as the Pacers coach, McMillan , 53, led the team to a 48-34 mark and a surprise

McMillan, 53, had just one season remaining on the three-year deal he signed with the Pacers back in 2016. This means he won’t head into next year as a lame-duck head coach.

Indiana’s success this past season can be attributed to the maturation of All-Star guard Victor Oladipo, who flashed big time in McMillan’s system. The likes of Myles Turner and Domantas Sabonis also upped their games.

Following a summer in which Indiana added to its bench in a big way, the team is going to have rather lofty expectations in 2018-19. Now, after this extension, said expectations will be heightened even more.
