Although the Dallas Mavericks had a bit of a disappointing season while defending their crown as NBA champions, the team is pleased with head coach Rick Carlisle and is intent on keeping him around for a while longer.
Carlisle had been working on a four-year contract that was set to expire on July 1. According to Brad Townsend of the Dallas Morning News, a deal has been completed for an extension and will be announced later on Tuesday. No other details of the extension are available at this time.
Carlisle has been with the Mavs since 2008 and led the team to their first-ever NBA title just last year. He began his head coaching career with the Detroit Pistons, where he won Coach of the Year honors in 2002. Carlisle then served as head coach of the Indiana Pacers before coming to Dallas.
