INDIANAPOLIS — As the Indiana Pacers were swept from in the first round of the NBA playoffs, the team decided to part ways with their former head coach, Nate McMillan, and enter their second head coaching search since 2011.

Next Indiana Pacers Full Time Head Coach

  • Chauncey Billups +500
  • Kenny Atkinson +550
  • Mike D’Antoni +550

  • Brett Brown +600
  • Adrian Griffin +750
  • Becky Hammon +750

Hammon’s NBA odds for the Pacers job are the shortest of any NBA coaching odds that she is a part of which includes the Oklahoma City Thunder Job and the Philadelphia 76ers job in which she is last on both odds boards with +2500 odds.

She should be taken seriously as a contender to land the job and become the first female head coach considering her resume. She has spent the past six seasons as an assistant coach for the San Antonio Spurs gaining experience from arguably one of the greatest coaches of all time in Greg Popovich.

The fact that she is an assistant coach for Popovich definitely holds its value. There are currently seven head coaches in the NBA that have been an assistant coach for Popovich in San Antonio, four of which who were coaching in the NBA playoffs this season including Brett Brown (76ers), Quin Snyder ( Utah Jazz), Taylor Jenkins (Memphis Grizzlies) and Mike Budenholzer (Milwaukee Bucks).

It also helps her odds being that the Pacers have already announced that Hammon would be interviewed for the job. The team would not make such a public announcement for it if she was not a serious candidate.

All in all, despite where she is on the odds board, Hammon’s odds can be taken seriously as she is a qualified candidate for the job and her odds would offer a great payout if she ends up taking over the reins in Indiana.
