But Kerr said Wednesday he wants to continue coaching for a long time. Those side effects haven’t gone away completely, but they haven’t prevented him from coaching his team this season. He’s been on the bench for all 42 games. In light of Jon Gruden inking a 10-year contract recently to coach the Raiders, Kerr was asked before Wednesday’s game if he would sign a contract of that length. “Yeah, I’d love to. I love what I do. I don’t see anybody giving me a 10-year contract though,” he said with a laugh. “I plan on coaching for a long time. I love what I do.”

From Denver’s perspective, trading for Beal means including rookie Michael Porter Jr. That’s a non-starter for the Nuggets, who are highly unlikely to part with Porter unless they get a superstar in return, according to a league source.
The first is that he’s given no indication [Bradley Beal] wants to leave Washington, and multiple league sources believe the Wizards don’t want to move him. He has two more seasons before deciding on a 2022-’23 player option, which buys the Wizards time. Not that the Wizards have been in anything other than purgatory the last few seasons, but moving Beal means a full-scale rebuild.

For all the changes to the Rockets since last season, with the departure of Mike D’Antoni as coach and Daryl Morey as general manager, owner Tilman Fertitta said on Tuesday that the stars of his roster will remain. The “window,” he said, is still open, giving him no reason for more widespread changes.
