There was little to no doubt that Gregg Popovich will continue on next season as the San Antonio Spurs head coach and, according to Adrian Wojnarowski, he is expected to pen a three-year contract which will keep him the highest-paid coach in the NBA.
Although it’s a three-year extension, Popovich will have the option to decide year by year whether he wishes to continue as the Spurs management believes he earned the right to manage his own future.
Popovich has 1,245 victories, third on the all-time list behind Don Nelson and Lenny Wilkens. He’s won five NBA championships as Spurs coach and has advanced to the NBA playoffs a league-record 22 consecutive years.
