The Portland Trail Blazers and Terry Stotts are nearing agreement on a contract extension.

The Blazers hold an option on the third and final season of Stotts' contract for 14-15, but that will likely be torn up with a new deal.

Stotts helped transform the Blazers with a 21-game regular-season improvement (54-28) and a seven-game first-round playoff series victory over the Houston Rockets.

Stotts was an assistant coach on the Dallas Mavericks' 2011 championship team.
