Ziller: Nate McMillan Would Have Been Damian Lillard's Perfect Coach?

Tom Ziller of SBNation.com offers some thoughts on the new head coaching hires around the NBA, including Terry Stotts with the Portland Trail Blazers. ------------------------------------- The Portland Trail Blazers interviewed everyone under the sun and ended up taking a spin with veteran coach Terry Stotts, who had previous turns heading the Milwaukee Bucks and Atlanta Hawks. He's one of those coaches who has a rather impeccable reputation in coaching circles, but who also has a losing record as a head coach (115-168). That means that reporters and columnists will be much more impressed by him than will fans ... until he shows his stuff. The goofy thing about Portland: Nate McMillan seems like he'd have been the perfect coach for top draft pick Damian Lillard. But the Blazers had fired McMillan back in March, well, before the draft. We'll see if Stotts can effectively develop the point guard. ------------------------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
