Nate McMillan officially named Head Coach 

Post#1 » by Jamaaliver » Mon Jul 5, 2021 5:27 pm

At this point, I wonder if they even interviewed other candidates. Regardless, it’s well deserved. I hope he has a few more deep postseason runs in him.

Wow

Just minutes into his news conference, Schlenk announced that he has an agreement in place for McMillan to be the permanent head coach...Schlenk revealed that he actually offered McMillan the job during the regular season (he forgets when exactly), and they agreed to wait until the Hawks were done to formalize a contract. Schlenk and McMillan spoke on Sunday during exit interviews to lay the framework of his new deal down and it was agreed upon Monday morning.

Thanks for posting that. I was thinking it was obvious he earned the job during the season so why not remove that interim tag. Now I understand why.
My eyes glaze over when reading alternative stat (not advanced stat) narratives that go many paragraphs long. If you can not make your point in 2 paragraphs it may not be a great point. :D

Trae talked about this in a radio interview after the Knicks series I think it was. Steven A Smith also mentioned it a while back (during the Knick series) that the deal was done just waiting for the playoffs to end for the formal announcement.

Congrats Nate, you deserve it!
(even if I was not happy with starting the second half of last game with Huerter instead of Reddish on Middleton :wink: )

Celtics interested in Hawks assistant GM Landry Fields

Any team’s march into later playoff rounds also prompts rivals searching to brain drain from a successful front office, and the rumors linking Hawks assistant general manager Landry Fields have not quieted either, sources said. Amid ongoing questions about the future structure of Boston’s basketball operations, Fields very much remains a top choice of Stevens and Celtics ownership to join Boston as the team’s general manager, sources told B/R.

 Atlanta could simply block the Celtics’ pursuit by elevating Fields to the same post underneath Hawks president Travis Schlenk, who currently holds the title of general manager. In that scenario, it’s believed Boston’s vice president of player development and former WNBA veteran Allison Feaster would be the leading candidate to be named general manager under Stevens. The 45-year-old was the only Celtics figure aside from ownership and Stevens who partook in Ime Udoka’s final interview, sources said. “It seems like she’s getting some serious traction,” said one assistant general manager.

Thoughts on Nate adding his son to the coaching staff?

I think it is fine. He was in New Orleans before, worked with Monty Williams and later became an assistant coach under Gentry.

I thought his BKN game coaching bad, but this is stupid to question that after a few games.
