Scott Brooks said in Thursday's exit interview that he plans on being back with OKC next season.
"I expect to be the coach next season," he said. He's entering the final year of his contract and there has been some chatter that he might not be back. There is no shortage of evidence to point to indicating that a move should be made not just now, but many years ago, including the overuse of Kendrick Perkins, the lack of discipline and imagination on offense, playing time issues, letting Derek Fisher get torched so many times, out of bounds plays and more. His players like him and play hard for him though, but one wonders if that's enough to outweigh the obvious basketball decisions that have flopped. Apr 16 - 12:34 PM

The Oklahoma City Thunder will reportedly evaluate their partnership with head coach Scott Brooks before brining him back fo the final year of his contract.

Brooks is under contract for the 2015-16 season and the Thunder hold a team option for 2016-17, but there are league sources close to Brooks who have doubts about his job security. While the Thunder disappointingly finished out of the playoffs, Brooks had to withstand major injuries to star players like Kevin Durant and Serge Ibaka and may get the benefit of the doubt for one more season. There is undoubtedly more to come on this one -- stay tuned.

The Thunder have hired Darko Rajakovic as an assistant coach.

Rajakovic spent the past two seasons as the head coach of OKC's D-League affiliate, the Tulsa 66ers. During that time his team went 51-49, and made a D-League semifinals appearance during the 2012-13 season. "Darko’s understanding of the core tenants of what we do, thanks to his time in Tulsa, will maintain a level of consistency that we value and his various head coaching experiences internationally will provide another layer to our coaches," said Scott Brooks.

Scott Brooks will be back to coach the Oklahoma City Thunder next season, according to general manager Sam Presti.

"Scotty, I think, did an excellent job," Presti said on Thursday. "[He] will come back a little bit better." Brooks saw plenty of criticism directed his way after the Thunder were bounced by the Spurs in the Western Conference finals. Both Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook spoke out in support of their coach, and now the team's general manager has done so as well.

When Scott Brooks was asked directly about his job security the coach replied, "It's something that I don't even consider."

Perhaps it is something he should consider as Scott Brooks overly simplistic offense has been often criticized over the years. OKC tends to play with a stand-and-watch offense, in which the ball is handed to either Kevin Durant or Russell Westbrook, and one of those guys tries to make a play. Although Scott Brooks has made multiple deep playoff runs during his tenure with OKC, it could be a situation in which that statistics is more indicative of the players than the coach.

Coach Scott Brooks said he doesn't "think anybody on [his] team played well" following Wednesday's loss.

Brooks added he didn't do a great job himself, which is probably an understatement. He continues to throw out wild lineups as coach Gregg Popovich just sticks to his guns with his primary response being not responding. While Brooks' teams have made plenty of postseason runs, his job is in jeopardy if he gets swept.

The Thunder hired Robert Pack and Mike Terpstra as assistant coaches Wednesday.

Pack has spent the past three seasons on the Clippers' bench, including a stint as the head coach of the Clippers' 2012 summer league team. Pack also played in the NBA for 13 years, which he split between six teams. Terpstra is a 20-year coaching veteran who has worked at all levels of the game, including working with multiple D-League teams.
