Jason Kidd Signs Extension with Mavericks

Jason Kidd will be staying in Dallas for a few more years. On Monday morning, the Dallas Mavericks announced that an agreement with the head coach had been made on a multiyear contract extension.

“We are excited to have Coach Kidd continue to lead our team throughout the coming years with this well-earned contract extension,” Mavericks governor Patrick Dumont said. “Kidd led our team to two playoff appearances in three seasons, and we are looking forward to his leadership in continuing to build and grow this already great franchise.”

“I have known Jason for a long time, and I cannot think of a better, more qualified candidate to lead this team going forward,” general manager Nico Harrison added. “As a former NBA Champion Hall of Fame player, Jason brings a wealth of experience and expertise to this role which cannot be duplicated. He has earned the trust and respect of our players and that of so many across the league, and I look forward to working alongside him as we continue to build upon the culture and foundation of success he’s helped foster throughout his tenure as head coach.”

Currently preparing for a second-round series against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Kidd had recently been linked to the Los Angeles Lakers opening for head coach. This is Kidd’s third season in charge of the Mavs. In 2022, the team reached the Western Conference Finals but lost to the Warriors. Last season, Dallas failed to make the playoffs.
