Former Blazers and Sonics coach Nate McMillan has emerged as a frontrunner for the Pistons head coaching job, reports the New York Daily News. McMillan last coached the Blazers -- he started with the team in 2005 season and was fired in the middle of the 2011-12 season. Before that, he coached the Sonics from 2000-01 to 2004-05.

From the New York Daily News Report:

"Former Portland and Seattle coach Nate McMillan has emerged as the front-runner to replace the fired Lawrence Frank and become the new head coach of the Detroit Pistons, according to sources familiar with Detroit's plans.

The Pistons want to hire a proven head coach and are targeting McMillan."

McMillan has a 478-452 record overall in the NBA. He also served as an assistant coach under Mike Kryzewski for Team USA when they won gold medals at the Olympics in Beijing in 2008 and London in 2012.
