Like Kevin Durant, Steve Kerr isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
At least according to Warriors owner Joe Lacob, according to a report by Ramon Shelburne of ESPN.
With one year left on a five-year, $25 million deal signed before the 2014-15 season, and having won three NBA championships in the last four seasons, the Warriors aren’t about to miss an opportunity to work out a new deal with Kerr.
“We’ll get it done this summer,” Lacob said. “Let him rest a little bit. But we’ll get it done. He wants to be with us. We want him long term. He obviously has some health issues he’s still working through, but we’ll get it done. I think as long as he feels comfortable doing it long term, we want him.”
In his four seasons at the helm, Kerr was a record of 265-63 (.808) and have played for the NBA title in all four campaigns.
The health issues to which Lacob referred included missing the first 43 games of the 2015-16 season after complications from back surgery and missing six weeks of the playoffs last season because of migraines and nausea that were extensions of the back surgery from the year before. Kerr did not have any health issues this season.
