John MacLeod (basketball)

John Matthew MacLeod (born October 3, 1937 in New Albany, Indiana) is an American former basketball coach in the National Basketball Association. He has coached three different NBA teams; from 1973 through 1987, he coached the Phoenix Suns. The next year, he was hired by the Dallas Mavericks as head coach, a position he held for a bit over two years. In addition, he coached the New York Knicks for part of the 1990-1991 season.

MacLeod had considerable success with Phoenix, but his teams did not win it all in the playoffs - they lost once in the NBA Finals, and twice at the Western Conference level.
