That's what happens when you have crap management at the top. Shame on Pritchard for letting this get out the way it did.

They should fire Pritchard while they are at it. He can't possibly wash his hands of this and not take a significant amount of the blame.

Offer him a contract tomorrow back home. Let him be lead assistant coach and rebuild his confidence.

Pacers did him dirty.

Sounded like Nurse really liked him so would be great to have him back if he wants that.

He was supposed to be assistant to Nurse for national team before lockdown. Maybe we'll get some info next week?

Pritchard's communication was not the best, but he is not the one that clearly lost the team.
Pacers management should all be fired for letting Nate McMillan go for more 3-point shooting. Well, that's what you get!

I'd be concerned about the media leaks that seemed to not just come directly from their players, Prichard does have a history of creating contaminated water if you check out his time with Portland. He's a great talent evaluator, but seems to have some shady practices, his previous employers eventually got fed up with it and let him go.

Love when teams cop out fire their coach when their team is hot garbage to begin with.

Keep Nate, wash the roster. No one is worth a damn outside of LaVert

Outside of Levert, like 2-time All-star Sabonis. The talent was certainly there, Nate deserved to be fired for ending behind teams like the Knicks, Wizards. Injuries aside, that roster could have ended up 4th seed.

Malcolm Brogdon
Sabonis, Domantas
Turner, Myles
Holiday, Aaron
Holiday, Justin
Lamb, Jeremy
LeVert, Caris
McDermott, Doug
Warren, T. J.
