Nate McMillan has emerged as the front-runner to become the next head coach of the Detroit Pistons, according to sources.
The Pistons want a proven coach and have targeted McMillan, who has coached the Seattle SuperSonics and most recently the Portland Trail Blazers.
McMillan has an overall record of 478-452, with his teams going 14-20 in the playoffs. He has also been an assistant coach with Team USA under Mike Krzyzewski, when the U.S. won gold medals in Beijing in 2008 and London in 2012.
Lawrence Frank was fired by the Pistons last week.
