The Indiana Pacers, meanwhile, hired former Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle as their new head coach. While Carlisle coached Dallas to an NBA title in 2011 and is the 15th-winningest coach in NBA history, the Pacers received criticism for their coaching search. The Timberwolves believed that the NBCA, which is led by Carlisle, failed to criticize the Pacers for the lack of a diverse head-coaching search as they did them, sources said.
