Spurs and Popovich agree to multi-year extension

He's Gregg Popovich, and you're not. - Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

Not satisfied with wrapping up the core of their team by signing Boris Diaw and Patty Mills to three-year deals, the Spurs announced today that they reached an agreement with coach Gregg Popovich to a multi-year extension of his contract.

I hope you're not expecting too much more information about the deal, because the official announcement ended with the now-familiar "Per club policy terms of the contract were not disclosed."

But that doesn't mean that we can't speculate. In fact, the the way the club plays things so close to the vest means that we're actually encouraged to fill in the blanks ourselves. To that end, I'd like to say that I expect both Pop and Tim Duncan to stick with the club past the 2014-15 season.

After all, Duncan has said that he will play as long as he feels he's still able to contribute, and Pop has relaxed from his previous I'll-leave-right-after-Duncan stance, saying multiple times that he'll coach as long as he still enjoys it.

So what do you say: How long will the gang stay together?
