McMillan has contract extended
McMillan led the Blazers to a 54-28 record last season and their first appearance in the playoffs since 2003. It was the sixth-best record in franchise history.
McMillan, 44, was just the second NBA coach to improve a team by at least nine wins in three straight seasons. His overall record in a nine-year coaching career with Seattle and Portland is 360-363.
