GM Jon Horst Signs Multi-Year Extension

The Milwaukee Bucks have signed General Manager Jon Horst to a multi-year contract extension.

With Horst entering the final year of his contract along with the success the Bucks have had since he got the job, this extension seemed like a no-brainer for this summer.

In his two seasons as General Manager, the Bucks have a 104-60 (.634) record and are positioned for long-term success. This past season, the Bucks went 60-22 (.732), the first 60-win season since the 1980-81 campaign and advanced past the first round of the playoffs for the first time since 2001.

Horst began his NBA front office career with the Detroit Pistons in 2005 before joining the Bucks basketball staff in 2008 as the team’s Director of Basketball Operations. Prior to his promotion to General Manager in 2017, Horst was instrumental in personnel evaluation, salary cap management and contract negotiations.
