Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports that the Thunder have added a fourth year to the contract extension offered to Brooks, but that the two sides remain fairly far apart in their ideas for the coach's annual salary.
Brooks' contract expires on Saturday, and he could immediately become a candidate for the Portland Trail Blazers, sources said. Thunder GM Sam Presti and Brooks' agent, Warren LeGarie, have had conversations this week, but there is still a gap between the sides [...]
Y! Sports reported during the Finals that Brooks had been offered a three-year extension worth around $11 million. Brooks made $2.1 million in the final year of his deal this season.
Brooks believes that his back-to-back trips to the Western Conference finals and this year's Western Conference championship should elevate his pay rate to the upper tier of NBA head coaches. The Thunder front office may not necessarily agree.
