Ron Adams Rumors
Warriors assistant coach Ron Adams expects to see head coach Steve Kerr back with the team sooner than later. “Quite frankly, he’s doing pretty well, but he’s having some headaches and some things like that that are dissipating slowly,” Adams told Sirius XM on Friday. “But I anticipate him back in the next few days, so I don’t think this is going to be a very long time period.”
Asked if Kerr would coach the season opener, Adams said, “I think without question…I think he’s going to be fine.” The Warriors announced Thursday on the third day of training camp that Kerr was taking a leave of absence to recover from two offseason back surgeries and did not provide a timetable.
Warriors ownership and management, from CEO Joe Lacob all the way down through coach Steve Kerr and the members of his staff, have been consistent in expressing their faith in Ezeli’s future. “I have coaches that are dedicated to helping me,” Ezeli said, singling out veteran assistant Ron Adams. “I worked with Ron every day. Ron has a vision for what he thinks I can be in this league. He thinks I can be a very big defensive force, but at the same time he also has high hopes for my offense. Coach Kerr says the same thing.”
