3 possible landing sites when Dirk Nowitzki, Mavericks can not agree on a new contract
Steve Kerr and Golden State Warriors nearing completion Contract extension and possibly more trips to the finals.
Get ready to see more of the Golden State warriors in the NBA Finals. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Steve Kerr is in the midst of completing an expansion which will make him one of the highest paid coaches in the league.
Kerr's original contract, signed in 2014, took him five million dollars a year for five years. In his first four years at the head of the bank, Kerr led the Warriors to four finals appearances and three championships. In the only year in which he won no title, Golden State achieved a record in the regular season of the NBA with 73 wins.
Kerr has a 265-63 record in the regular season and 63-20 in the playoffs.
While things were good on the pitch, Kerr fought out-of-court health issues that caused him to waste time. A back operation in 2015 stopped him in the regular season 2015/16 for 43 games from the outside line. In May 2017, Kerr underwent a "procedure" to correct the spinal cord leak that resulted from the spinal surgery that led him to miss 11 postseason games. Kerr did not hesitate to talk about his health problems, and he wondered if they would prevent him from signing an extension before the 2017/18 season began.
At the age of 52, Kerr looks comfortable enough with his health to reach the final for at least two more seasons.
The Warriors bank chief became 2016 Coach of the Year.
Locked with Kerr Kevin Durant is to sign again in the next offensive phase of the Warriors. Maybe Ownership can get him to make another pay cut now that Kerr's salary is going up after the 2018-19 season.
It's the warrior world war, everyone. They are so kind to constantly remind us.
