The competition in the search for head coaching jobs is thinning for the Memphis Grizzlies.
Monday, the Brooklyn Nets named Kenny Atkinson their head coach. Atkinson was an assistant with the Atlanta Hawks.
Also, Nate McMillan was elevated to head coach of the Indiana Pacers. He was the lead assistant under Frank Vogel who, reportedly, is the Grizzlies' top target.
McMillan spent 12 seasons as the head coach in Seattle and Portland, going 478-452 in the regular season and 14-20 in the playoffs.
He was hired by Vogel in 2013 and spent the past three seasons with the Pacers.
