Thunder general manager Sam Presti and coach Scott Brooks were busy with the NBA Draft on Thursday night, and neither commented on a report that Brooks has been offered a four-year contract extension to remain as OKC's coach.

Yahoo! Sports has reported the Thunder initially offered Brooks a three-year extension with $11 million, but negotiations continue due to differences on the amount of a four-year deal.

Brooks, whose contract expires Saturday, reportedly made $2.1 million last season when the Thunder picked up the option year on his three-year deal.

Yahoo! Sports also has cited sources who claim Brooks could be a candidate for the Portland Trail Blazers and the Orlando Magic coaching positions.

The Magic is now under the direction of new general manager Rob Hennigan, who was hired away last week after serving as the Thunder's assistant general manager the last four seasons.

The 46-year-old Brooks became OKC's interim coach after the team started out 1-12 in the 2008-09 season under coach P.J. Carlesimo.

Brooks has since gone 174-125 (.582) in the regular season and 24-19 (.558) in the postseason.
