Kings Extend Smart Through 2013-2014
The Kings could have waited a few months and made Keith Smart prove himself more before deciding he was their coach beyond the 2012-13 season.
But in Smart’s first six months, Kings basketball president Geoff Petrie said he had seen enough.
The Kings announced Monday that Smart had agreed to a contract extension through the 2013-14 season.
“We had talked about it at length somewhat after the season, after the draft,” Petrie said. “We just really moved forward on it in the last couple of weeks. It’s something I’m really in favor of. He’s the right coach at the right time for the group of players.”
