Nate McMillan Inks Two-Year Extension With Blazers

Nate McMillan has been given a contract extension by the Blazers, says the team: “The Portland Trail Blazers signed Head Coach Nate McMillan to a two-year contract extension, it was announced today by General Manager Rich Cho. ‘With his NBA and USA Basketball track record, Nate has established himself as one of the premier minds in the game of basketball,’ said Cho. ‘What Nate has accomplished in the last few years is truly remarkable and getting his contract extended was a top priority for the franchise and me.’ McMillan, 46, is currently in his sixth year with the Trail Blazers after signing with the team prior to the 2005-06 season. He has a 234-239 (.495) record with the Trail Blazers and a 446-422 (.514) overall mark in 11 NBA seasons with Portland and Seattle. He is the second longest tenured Trail Blazers head coach behind only Jack Ramsay.”
