Erik Spoelstra’s Contract Extended
Of primary interest in (Pat) Riley’s annual preseason state-of-the-franchise media session at American Airlines Arena was the status of fourth-year coach Erik Spoelstra, who had been heading into the final season of his contract, and the team’s inability to land a proven big man.
The coaching issue, Riley revealed Friday, has been resolved.
“Erik’s contract has been extended,” Riley said, declining to give the length of the extension. “We have one of the great young coaches in the league.”
