The Oklahoma City Thunder have reached an agreement with their biggest free agent this offseason, head coach Scott Brooks, on a new four-year deal, reports David Aldridge of NBA.com.
“Deal done in OKC for Scott Brooks, should be signed Monday,” Aldridge tweeted Sunday night. “Four years, 4M+/year.”
Brooks is one of the most talented, young coaches in the NBA. Brooks took over the head coaching position in 2008 after replacing P.J. Carlesimo and led the Thunder to the NBA Finals in just his fourth season.
Brooks has amassed a career record of 299-174 in four years at Oklahoma City. Discounting his first season, where the franchise only won 22 games, Brooks has made the playoffs three straight years, gathering an impressive record of 152-78 during that span.
For the 2009-10 season, Brooks was named “NBA Coach of the Year” and he coached the Western Conference All-Stars during the 2012 NBA All-Star Game in Orlando.
