The Indiana Pacers and head coach Nate McMillan have agreed upon a contract extension, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

After trading All-Star Paul George in the 2017 offseason, McMillan led the Pacers to a 48-win season (a six-win increase from the 2016-17 season) and the Eastern Conference's fifth seed. The Pacers went on to take the eventual Eastern Conference champion Cavaliers to seven games in the first round of the 2018 playoffs.

McMillan, 53, took over as head coach of the Pacers after the team decided to part ways with Frank Vogel in 2016. In his two seasons as head coach, Indiana has a record of 90-74 and has made the postseason in both years.

With the extension, McMillan will be at the helm through the 2020-21 season. With the young talent of Victor Oladipo, Domantas Sabonis and Myles Turner in addition to free agent acquisition Tyreke Evans, Indiana looks to establish itself a contender in the Eastern Conference.
