PORTLAND, OR (AP) -

A person with knowledge of the negotiations says Portland Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts has agreed to a three-year contract extension.

Stotts coached the young Trail Blazers to the second round of the playoffs this year.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on Monday on condition of anonymity because the team has not announced the deal.

The Blazers hold a team option on Stotts' current contract for the coming season. The extension, first reported by Yahoo Sports, goes into effect following the season and runs through 2020.

Stotts would not talk about contract negotiations when the team held exit interviews with players at the end of the season.

The Blazers have gone 182-146 in four seasons since Stotts took over. The Blazers have gone to the postseason for the past three seasons, advancing to the second round twice.
