Sam Mitchell Blasts Steve Kerr For Coaching Strategy Against Suns

Published

on

NBA TV analyst is not a fan of the tactic that Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr employed during their 46-point blowout victory over the Phoenix Suns.

Kerr opted to lay off coaching, and allow his veteran players to run the huddle and call plays saying that he was simply trying to reach his team and also lay back a bit ahead of the NBA All-Star break.

Suns’s players such as veteran Jared Dudley took issue with Kerr’s play but also admitted that the Suns were deserving of the humiliation.

Injured Suns guard Devin Booker and head coach Jay Triano also said they were okay with Kerr’s decision.

Mitchell, on the other hand, had some critical comments.

“I have nothing to say,” Mitchell said. “For the people who think this is great, just let someone with no experience come to show up at their job and that’s not what they do and you let them do your job.”

“Look, I understand Steve Kerr’s been winning, he has two championship rings, he’s been to three Finals and Golden State can do what they wanna do… If they win Smitty, do I even need to coach them? Why don’t I just pay Kevin Durant an extra mill and say ‘you be the player-coach now’?”

Warriors Expected to Pick Up Damian Jones’ Option

Published

on

The Golden State Warriors are expected to pick up the fourth-year team option on center Damian Jones prior to Wednesday’s deadline to make the move, according to Bay Area News Group’s Mark Medina.

By executing the move, Golden State would add $2,305,057 in guaranteed money to the books for 2019-2020, and will increase the projected tax bill, boosting them well over the luxury tax threshold if the team brings back superstars Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson, who are both pending free agents.

Jones has performed well during his time on the court this season, averaging 6.0 PPG, 2.4 RPG, and 1.4 BPG in 8 games, all starts.
