The Golden State Warriors have signed head coach Steve Kerr to a contract extension, the team announced today. Per team policy, terms of the agreement were not released.

“We’re excited to have Steve under contract and poised to lead our team for the next several years,” Warriors President of Basketball Operations/General Manager Bob Myers said in a official statement.

Kerr has led the Warriors to 3 NBA Championships, including back-to-back titles (2018, 2018) over his four seasons.

“Under his guidance, we’ve been fortunate enough to win three NBA titles in four years and his ability to thrive in all facets of his job is certainly a primary reason for our success. He’s a terrific coach, but more importantly an incredible human being.”

Kerr is the 25th head coach in franchise history and the 20th since the team moved to the West Coast in 1962.

Warriors’ Andrew Bogut Responds to Joel Embiid Dig, Says He is Returning to Sydney Next Season

Published

Golden State Warriors big man Andrew Bogut’s current stint with the team will be a short one, as he stated his plans to return to Sydney, Australia next season, while responding to a recent dig from Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid.

Embiid made a joke at the Warriors expense during a recent post-game presser, and it wasn’t unnoticed by Bogut.

“Joel Embiid saying the 76ers don’t want to do what we did in the 2016 Finals is just Joel being Joel – he’s a bit of a larrikin,” Bogut stated, via Yahoo Sports Australia. “But they have to get to a Finals series first before they can even think about doing that.

“It’s been a funny talking point for a lot of people in the league. But we haven’t taken any notice of it and it’s not something that’s been mentioned in the locker room.”

While Bogut has proven he is still a solid NBA contributor at this stage of his career while filing in for the injured DeMarcus Cousins at center, he doesn’t want to undergo another 82-game NBA season.

“It doesn’t really sit well with me when people say I need to prove that I can still play in the NBA. I know I can,” Bogut wrote. “Coming back to the NBL was great for myself, my body and my family. I just don’t really want to get involved in the grueling 82-game NBA season from September until June any more.

I feel like I need to be at home more in the next few years, especially with two young kids. Coming to the NBA for a few months is very doable with the kids, but a full 10-month season isn’t something that I want to do.

I know I can still play in the league but it’s not something I’m looking to do long term. I’m very happy in Sydney and I think we’re doing something pretty special there.”
