The Golden State Warriors will bring back all but one member of Head Coach Steve Kerr’s coaching staff that, in their first season together in 2014-15, produced a franchise-record 67 regular-season wins and the team’s first NBA Championship in 40 years, the team announced today. Luke Walton, 35, will slide into the seat previously occupied by Alvin Gentry, who was named head coach of the New Orleans Pelicans earlier this offseason. Entering his second season as an assistant coach with the Warriors, Walton previously served as a player development coach for the Los Angeles D-Fenders of the NBA D-League in 2013-14 and as an assistant coach at the University of Memphis during the 2011 NBA Lockout. The San Diego native enjoyed a 10-year playing career in the NBA (2003-13) with the Los Angeles Lakers and Cleveland Cavaliers, capturing NBA championships with the Lakers in 2009 and 2010.

Relativity Sports’ business operations are unaffected by layoffs at film and television studio Relativity Media, which owns a minority equity stake in the sports agency, a Relativity Sports source said today. Variety earlier today reported that Relativity Media issued layoff notices to 75 of its 350 employees. Relativity Sports was launched in July ’12 and was styled as a division of Relativity Media, but it is actually a separate company, said this source.

Omri Casspi is by all accounts a great teammate and friend. But his country’s policing practices are going global and jeopardizing the safety of communities that you have pledged to defend. Here is hoping you read this and here is hoping you return home clear that everything you stand for, everything that compelled you to wear that shirt on December 12 for Eric Garner, puts you on the other side of the barricades of Sheldon Adelson. UPDATE, 7/28/2015: I spoke to Rudy Gay’s Agent Alex Saratsis. He was very upset that it had been widely disseminated that Rudy Gay was a part of delegation. He made clear that Rudy Gay had been asked. He did not give a reason why Rudy Gay did not make the trip.
