Previously, coach McMillan led Atlanta this season, recording a 29-30 record under .500. Atlanta was ranked 8th in the Eastern Conference, but has been unsatisfactory in recent games.
In particular, manager McMillan had a conflict with ‘Ace’ Trae Young. Atlanta didn’t let Young out at the trade market deadline, and it’s predicted that manager McMillan will eventually step down from the baton.
Manager McMillan joined Atlanta as a coach for the 2020-21 season. He took the helm in place of manager Lloyd Pearce, who was fired during the season, and advanced to the Eastern Conference finals. He later signed a full-time directing contract. In his three seasons with Atlanta, he went 99-80.
Meanwhile, following Woz, reporter Shams Canary of The Athletic introduced the potential candidates for the job as Atlanta’s next head coach.
According to Shams, Milwaukee Bucks head coach Charles Lee is emerging as a strong candidate for the next head coaching job. Also included were Sacramento Kings head coach Jordi Fernandez, San Antonio Spurs head coach Mitchell Johnson, G League South Bay Lakers head coach Miles Simon and former Utah Jazz head coach Quinn Snyder.
In addition, some local Atlanta fans also want head coach Eme Udoka and Golden State Warriors head coach Kenny Atkinson, who lost their positions in Boston.
