Warriors Will Interview Boston Celtics Assistant Ron Adams
The 2013-14 season has finally come to an end and now the off-season begins. The Warriors were one of the teams with a coaching vacancy when their season came to an end, but they hired Steve Kerr and now they are ahead of the curve. However, they have yet to hire a coaching staff, but it looks like they will be interviewing some promising assistant coaches.
Kerr admitted that he had been contacted by several people about possibly joining his coaching staff, so the Warriors should have plenty of options. Celtics assistant coach Ron Adams will interview with the Warriors after only year in Boston, according to Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald:
According to a league source, top assistant Ron Adams will interview for a place on Steve Kerr’s Golden State staff Tuesday, after the Celtics granted the Warriors permission to talk with the veteran right hand man.
Adams is one of the most experienced assistant coaches in the NBA. He was part of Tom Thibodeau’s coaching staff in Chicago, but was let go because of a rift with general manager Gar Forman. Adams joined Brad Steven in Boston, but after one year with the Celtics, he might be looking to relocate once again. Adams might be looking help a contender and the Warriors are the perfect team for him to come in and get them to the next level.
Adams is known as a defensive coach and with all their offense at their disposal, Adams will be welcomed with open arms in the Bay Area. At 66 years old, Adams is nearing the end of his career and the Warriors might be the best option for him if he wants to win his first NBA championship.
