Jason Kidd expresses interest in coaching Warriors after Steve Kerr
Update: Kidd released a statement:
“I’d like to clarify that my comments about coaching the Warriors were taken out of context as I was making a joke during the interview. The Warriors have a great coach in Steve Kerr.”
I don’t think anyone took his comment about the Warriors as an ultra-serious reflection of his career plans. But in case you did, here you go.
Kidd – who coached the Nets and Bucks after a Hall of Fame playing career – grew up in the Bay Area, and he’s interested in returning.
Kidd, via Yahoo:
Who wouldn’t want to coach the Warriors? Even if it’s after Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson are done, they’ve built a prestige for the organization that should last. Strong ownership and management should remain.
