Now that Mike D'Antoni has officially been named coach of the Los Angeles Lakers, he may start to hire some of his own assistants. And according to Ken Berger at CBS Sports, one of those assistants could be Nate McMillan.

McMillan worked with D'Antoni on the Team USA coaching staff, and is currently without a job in the NBA after being fired by the Portland Trail Blazers midway through last season. In six and a half season in Portland, McMillan gained a reputation as a good defensive coach - an attribute that would fit nicely with D'Antoni's ran-and-gun offensive style.
