05:58 PM ET 05.23 | On the same day coach Mike Krzyzewski announced he would return to coach Team USA, his assistant, Nate McMillan, said he won't. McMillan is currently searching for a head coaching opportunity that would fit him. The Detroit Pistons, Atlanta Hawks and Milwaukee Bucks have interviewed McMillan thus far in the process, but he won't look into the Charlotte Bobcats opening, according to Yahoo! Sports. "It was a great experience with Coach K," McMillan said. "Jerry Colangelo did a great job bringing the staff together. They have to continue to build on what they started. It would be good for someone to experience it. I'm grateful for my six and a half years."

Mike and Nate have to find full time jobs this summer, so they couldn't afford to commit to the USA ball. It would be good for some younger coaches to get some looks, like Marc Jackson or Monty Williams etc
