The Sacramento Kings and head coach Mike Brown have agreed to a three-year contract extension through the 2026-27 season, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium reports the deal is worth $30 million. Brown's base salary will be $8.5 million annually, with the chance to earn up to $10 million per year with bonuses.

Brown joined the Kings in the 2022-23 season and was named NBA Coach of the Year in his first year. He previously served as an associate head coach for the Golden State Warriors for six years. Brown also had two stints as head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers (2005-2010, 2013-2014) and a term with the Los Angeles Lakers (2011-2012).

In his first season with the Kings, Brown led them to their first playoff appearance in 16 years, coming close to beating the Warriors to advance to the second round. This past season, the Kings finished with a 46-36 record, reaching the play-in tournament. They won their first game against the Warriors but lost to the New Orleans Pelicans.

Despite missing the postseason this year, the Kings have shown significant improvement under Brown. Before his arrival, the team hadn't won more than 40 games since 2006. They've hit that mark in both seasons with Brown as head coach.

The Kings still have a long way to go to compete for a championship, but keeping Brown on board is seen as a crucial step in their progress.
