Warriors

Steve Kerr made headlines last month when he said the Warriors wouldn't be interested in participating in some sort of summer league with the teams not restarting their seasons in Orlando.

On Thursday, Golden State's coach provided an update on his perspective as a guest on The Athletic's "Hoops, Adjacent" podcast with David Aldridge and BIG Wos.

"Originally when it was announced that the 22 teams would go to Orlando, we felt like the other eight of us would probably be allowed to do some kind of an in-market training camp. And that is the most preferable scenario for us and, frankly, for most of the teams," Kerr explained. "But like everything else in the world, there are just so many factors here.

"I respect where the NBA is coming from, where the Players Association is coming from, where the guidelines are coming from, so this is really complex.

"We're going to do whatever the league asks us to do. If that means going to Chicago for a bubble, then we'll do it."

Well, there you have it.

But don't expect players such as Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Andrew Wiggins to join the Warriors in the Windy City. In fact, it's very possible Kerr won't make the trip either.

When Aldridge said, "I got to imagine at the very least, younger guys would be the core of your group, right? And maybe some of the younger coaches, frankly, might make that trip," Kerr was transparent.

"We really haven't had a chance to talk about it, but I think those are pretty good assumptions to make," the eight-time NBA champion said. "It would feel like a summer league. If we go to Chicago, it's purely for development."

So guys like Eric Paschall, Jordan Poole, Alen Smailagic and Marquese Chriss would be expected to take the floor.

It's safe to assume new details will emerge at some point this month, but the overwhelming majority of the league's focus right now -- understandably -- is on Orlando.
