Sources: Griz hand Jenkins multiyear extension

Memphis Grizzlies coach Taylor Jenkins has agreed to a multiyear contract extension, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Jenkins finished second in the league’s coach of the year voting and led the Grizzlies to the second-best regular-season record in the NBA.

Memphis is securing key parts to its bright future. Jenkins joins forward Jaren Jackson Jr., on a new long-term deal — with franchise guard Ja Morant poised for his rookie max contract extension in July. General manager Zach Kleiman, the NBA’s executive of year, agreed to an extension last year.

Jenkins was named Grizzlies head coach ahead of the 2019 season and has led the team to the playoffs in each of the past two years.
