OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - The Golden State Warriors have picked up the option on coach Mark Jackson's contract for the 2014-15 season.
The team announced the move Wednesday.
Jackson took the Warriors from a 23-43 record during the lockout-shortened season his first year to a 47-35 team that earned the Western Conference's sixth seed and eliminated Denver in the first round of the playoffs. The eventual conference champion San Antonio Spurs knocked Golden State out in six games in the second round.
The Warriors and Jackson could still work out a long-term extension this summer. But picking up the option at least ensures Jackson won't enter next season with an expiring contract.
