The Dallas Mavericks have secured a long-term contract for coach Jason Kidd, extending his deal for multiple years. He was playing on a contract that was set to expire after the 2023-24 NBA season but after an impressive end to the season, there was an increasing expectation of both sides reaching an agreement on a deal.

Mavericks Governor Patrick Dumont expressed enthusiasm for Kidd’s continued leadership, stating, “We’re thrilled to have Coach Kidd at the helm for years to come. His impressive track record, including two playoff berths and a division title, speaks to his exceptional coaching abilities.”

Kidd’s tenure has been marked by significant achievements, including two 50-win seasons and a Western Conference Finals appearance in 2022. His ability to foster a winning culture and motivate his players has been instrumental in the team’s success.

A series victory would mark Kidd’s second Western Conference Finals appearance as coach, further solidifying his reputation as a top-tier coach in the league.
