Portland Trailblazers Fire Head Coach Nate McMillan

Apparently trading away players wasn’t the only plan in Portland. The Blazers have fired head coach Nate McMillan, per Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Blazers started the season playing well, but enter the trade deadline date a disappointing 20-23, and have unloaded Gerald Wallace and Marcus Camby in deadline deals.

Much like the situation with the New York Knicks, many sources indicated McMillan had lost the locker room, and it was only a matter of time before the team let him go.
