INDIANAPOLIS– The Indiana Pacers are set to hire former Toronto Raptors assistant coach Nate Bjorkgren as the team’s new head coach.
The news was first reported by The Athletic’s Shams Charania and later confirmed to CBS4 via sources.
The Pacers made the official announcement Tuesday afternoon.
Before his job with the Raptors, Bjorkgren was also an assistant coach for the Phoenix Suns.
The Pacers fired former head coach Nate McMillan in August after the team was swept in the first round of the NBA Playoffs.
