The Chicago Sky announced that they had extended Coach James Wade through 2025.
Wade signed a contract extension through 2025 back in 2021. I reached out to the team about this and this was their response ⬇️ more TK for @TheNextHoops tomorrow (I’m flying back to CHI shortly) https://t.co/mx41FlnSzQ pic.twitter.com/1gFXiu7WPF— James Kay (@James_M_Kay) August 24, 2022
Per James Kay of The Next Hoops, the latest extension Wade signed was a “renegotiated, refurbished contract” that will replace the contract Wade signed in 2021 after leading the Sky to their first title in franchise history.
“The clock starts again, and the new contract is now three years.”
Wade has compiled a 74-50 record since taking over the sidelines in 2019. Wade led the Sky to third, first, second, and first place finishes in the Eastern Conference. He led the Sky to their first title as a sixth seed in 2021.
This year, the Sky (26-10) finished as the best team in the East but are the No. 2 overall seed of the playoffs behind the Aces, who finished with an identical record but held the tiebreaker after beating the Sky three times over their four regular-season meetings.
