The Portland Trail Blazers and coach Terry Stotts have reached agreement on a multi-year contract extension, according to Casey Holdahl of Blazers.com.
Trail Blazers general manager Neil Olshey said that the deal between Stotts and the Blazers was reached “20 minutes ago.” That was around 2 p.m. Pacific.
Stotts and the Blazers are coming off a loss to the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference finals — the Blazers’ first trip there under Stotts. The Warriors won in four straight games.
Stotts, 61, has coached the Blazers since 2012. He has compiled a 325-249 record (.566 winning percentage) in those seven seasons. Along with the Blazers, Stotts has coached the Atlanta Hawks (2002-04) and Milwaukee Bucks (2005-07).
Overall, he is 440-417 as a head coach.
His coaching career began as an assistant under George Karl with the Albany Patroons of the old Continental Basketball Association. Stotts has also served as an assistant with the Dallas Mavericks and Golden State Warriors, among others.
