Indiana Pacers head coach Nate Bjorkgren faces an uncertain future with the organization. Bjorkgren has significant work to do in repairing relationships with players and other team members.

The news of the uncertain fate for the coach was revealed by ESPN reporter Adrian Wojnarowski. “Amid a year of difficulties with players and staff, Indiana Pacers coach Nate Bjorkgren’s future with the franchise is uncertain as the regular season nears an end,” Wojnarowski revealed. “The Pacers are 30-34 and in ninth place in the Eastern Conference.”

“Bjorkgren has work to do on relationships with key players in his locker room, sources tell ESPN, and has thus far shown a willingness within the organization to try to address those issues.”

The Pacers have been hit with various injuries this season, and it has dashed hopes of making any meaningful postseason run. According to sources, Bjorkgren’s coaching style and communication on and off the court, and individually, has been the source of team turmoil this season. The player locker rooms have been reportedly very quiet and disconnected because of the coach’s style.

The Pacers’ head coach has one year left on his contract. That being said, he could very well be fired at the end of this season.
