The Golden State Warriors and executive board member Jerry West agreed to a two-year contract extension, keeping him with the team through the 2016-2017 season, reports Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News.
West’s deal was set to expire at the end of the upcoming season. Warriors general manager Bob Myers agreed to a contract extension last week.
The Warriors won 51 games last season and secured a second consecutive playoff berth, but fired head coach Mark Jackson at the end of the season. Former NBA player and television analyst Steve Kerr was hired to replace Jackson.
The team is set to move into a new arena in San Francisco in time for the 2018 season.
