Nate McMillan is expected to join the Atlanta Hawks as an assistant coach, per Marc Stein of the New York Times.

McMillan parted ways with the Indiana Pacers after his team got swept by the Miami Heat in the first round of the 2020 playoffs.

For his part, the head coach of the Hawks, Lloyd Pierce, is entering his third season on the team’s bench.

Atlanta is getting ready for the 2020/21 season after a disappointing performance last year.
