Thunder Head Coach Scott Brooks has reportedly rejected a new deal from the Oklahoma City Thunder
Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports is reporting the following:
“..Brooks is still working to solidify his own future as Oklahoma City coach. GM Sam Presti wants him back when his contract expires at the end of the Finals, but league sources say Presti has offered a three-year deal worth just under $11 million that Brooks and his agent weren’t willing to accept in the past. They’ve set aside talks for the playoffs, and compromise could come with a guaranteed fourth year.”
Brooks’ contract situation could stall progress this offseason for the Thunder as they look to build upon their 2012 successes. Brooks has taught these young men how to act like sporting professionals, while it is hard to see him leaving it would be difficult to maintain the momentum of the last 24 months.
