McMillan has a 661-588 record in 16 seasons as an NBA coach, including with Seattle and Portland before he was the Pacers’ coach from 2016 through 2020. The Pacers fired McMillan on Aug. 26 after being swept in the first round of the playoffs.
His record in four seasons with the Pacers was 183-136. It was the fourth-highest victory total in franchise history, but that success was marred by a 3-16 record in the postseason.
Pierce said McMillan brings “value, expertise and experience” to the Hawks.
