Adams, who worked closely with Rajon Rondo last season in the point guard's return from ACL surgery, and also played a role in Avery Bradley's improvement as a shooter, is also expected to work closely with Golden State's promising young crop of players. He will not serve as Kerr's lead assistant. That job has already been filled by fellow veteran Alvin Gentry, who left a similar job under Doc Rivers with the Clippers last week. Adams, who was given permission by Celtics management to look into the Golden State opportunity, gave thanks to Stevens and Danny Ainge for allowing him to look west. "I was very honest all along with Brad," said Adams. "I was also very conflicted about it." Boston Herald

The biggest clash of all came last summer. That's when Forman decided to let go of popular assistant coach -- and Thibodeau confidant -- Ron Adams.

The big question comes down to whether they could coexist in the future. ESPN.com

Ron Adams, in his first season as a Celtics assistant, forged a close relationship with Stevens when Stevens was at Butler University and Adams was on Tom Thibodeau’s staff with the Bulls. Adams was not re-signed by Chicago last summer. Thibodeau talked before Thursday’s game about how Adams can help Stevens’s development as an NBA coach. “He’s a great assistant; he’s a great coach, period,” Thibodeau said. “I think Brad has really studied the pro game for a long time. He came by a few times to visit with Ron when Ron was here. “Obviously his record speaks for itself at this level and I think he’s done a terrific job with the Celtics. Boston Globe

Adams does so after general manager Gar Forman didn't renew his Bulls' contract in late June in an unusual move that drew widespread league attention because head coaches typically handle their staffs and the Bulls were coming off three straight playoff berths. It also raised questions about the working relationship between Forman and coach Tom Thibodeau. Adams, who said he's enjoying working with Stevens and the Celtics, addressed Forman's decision for the first time publicly in an interview. Forman declined comment, as he has since addressing the matter generally at the time. "It's still a bit mystifying to me," Adams said. "And I don't understand it. And if the intent was to be hurtful to me and my family, it succeeded." Chicago Tribune
