McMillan, 56, was named Pacers coach before the 2016-17 season and has a 181-136 record with the team, including 43-28 this season. Indiana sits in fifth place in the Eastern Conference, with two seeding games remaining in the restarted NBA season.

It will be the fourth straight trip to the playoffs under McMillan, although the team hasn’t advanced out of the first round in the East.

McMillan previously coached the Seattle SuperSonics (1999-2005) and Portland Trail Blazers (2005-12) and has a 659-588 regular-season record, plus a 17-32 mark in the playoffs.
