PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Fresh off their surprising run in the playoffs, the Portland Trail Blazers have signed head coach Terry Stotts to a multi-year contract extension.
Stotts led the Blazers to a 54-28 regular-season record, for the team's biggest improvement in team history. Portland made the playoffs for the first time since 2011, dispatching the Houston Rockets in six games, before falling to the San Antonio Spurs in five games in the Western Conference semifinals.
Stotts has an 87-77 record in two seasons with the Blazers, after service as an assistant with the Dallas Mavericks for four seasons.
The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
