Monty Williams gets 4yr. contract extension 

Post#1 » by Copperhead » Sun Aug 19, 2012 1:03 pm

Hornets Coach Monty Williams agreed to a four-year contract extension Saturday that will keep him with the team with the team through 2016. Before the agreement was reached, Williams had one year remaining on his existing deal that included a team option for a fourth year.

Although the Hornets were out of playoff contention by January before finishing with a 21-45 record last season, Williams instilled a work ethic that kept the team competitive down the stretch despite being ravaged by injuries.

Shortly after Saints Owner Tom Benson purchased the Hornets from the NBA for $338 million in April, the franchise announced Williams and General Manager Dell Demps would be retained. ... er_default

This is great news. Now all they need to do is re-sign Dell and the DellMonty duo will remain in tact.

Isn't a 4-year extension a bit much for a guy that hasnt really proved anything yet?

he proved enough when you Hornets only had CP3 and not much around, he made that team a good playoff team, he is a great defensive coach and I think Hornets should trade Gordon and tank one more year to become a good playoff team in 2014
