As the Clippers look for a replacement for just-let-go coach Vinny Del Negro, former Portland Trail Blazers coach Nate McMillan has emerged as a potential candidate, according to several NBA executives who were not authorized to speak publicly on the situation.
McMillan is one of about five candidates the Clippers’ front office is seriously considering and will present to owner Donald Sterling, one NBA executive said.
McMillan has interviewed for the Atlanta Hawks job and he reportedly is also a candidate for the head-coach openings in Milwaukee and Detroit.
McMillan, 48, was fired as coach of the Trail Blazers in 2012. He has posted a 478-452 record over his 12 years as a coach.
