The Warriors are reportedly trying to move up in the first round of the 2016 NBA Draft.
The Dubs currently own the No. 30 overall selection in the upcoming draft, and they do not own any second-round picks, but they are reportedly trying to move up into the teens. Phoenix, Denver, Philadelphia and Boston all own multiple first-round picks, and it's unlikely that they'll use all of them, so moving up is a realistic possibility. The Trail Blazers are also trying to acquire a first-round selection. Jun 23 - 3:22 PM

Steve Kerr will have to put one of his healthy players on the inactive list for Monday's Game 5 with Draymond Green (suspension) active but unavailable.

James Michael McAdoo, Brandon Rush and Ian Clark have logged the least amount of minutes for the Dubs through their postseason run, so it'll likely be one of those guys heading to the inactive list. Rush did earn a start in the one game that Green was sidelined during the regular season, and McAdoo played well in limited minutes during Game 4, so perhaps it's Clark that comes to Game 5 in street clothes.

Steve Kerr described why his club is remaining confident despite conceding home court advantage to the Thunder during Monday's Game 1 loss.

"I was part of five championship teams as a player, and it was never easy," said Kerr. "Every team that I was on that won a title lost at least a home game during the playoffs. So it happens." Kerr also went on to say that with how long and athletic the Thunder are, it's difficult to go prolonged stretches using small-ball lineups, so it'll be interesting to see how much of the "death lineup" we see during Game 2. Kerr also hinted that Anderson Varejao could see an increased role as the series goes on.

Steve Kerr has won the 2015-16 Coach of the Year award.

Kerr missed much of the season with back issues, but it was hard not to give him the award after breaking the regular season win record. While Terry Stotts, Greg Popovich, Rick Carlisle, Brad Stevens, Steve Clifford, and others were in the discussion, Kerr is a well-deserved winner.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr hinted that he will let his players decide if they need rest during the final three games of the season.

"We’re going to talk about it Friday," Kerr said. "We’ve sort of been putting it off for as long as we were able to. Now that we have [the No. 1 seed], I’m inclined to give some guys a rest, if they need it. But I’ve also sort of made a pact with the guys that if they’re not tired and not banged up and they want to go for this record, then … so, we’ve got to talk." Stephen Curry and Draymond Green made it clear that they will go for the all-time wins record, so it doesn't sound like they're in too much danger of a DNP.

Steve Kerr said after Tuesday's loss to the Timberwolves that he believes the constant talk surrounding what may be a historic season for the Warriors could be impacting the team's play.

"I do think the constant questions and talk about -- whether it's home win streak or record or whatever -- I think all that stuff does take its toll," said Kerr. "Whether the players know it or not, whether it's a conscious thing or not, and it probably has taken a little bit away from, as I said, our process or our work." Kerr added that while putting forth the best regular-season in NBA history would be a nice accomplishment, a championship remains the ultimate goal for Golden State.

Steve Kerr described the season that the Warriors are currently having as "mind-boggling."

"Mind-boggling," Kerr said. "I could have never imagined anything like this, but a lot of things have gone our way this year, and the guys have done an amazing job, coming off of last year, of focusing on getting better and trying to continue the rise." The Dubs need to go at least 6-2 in their next eight games to set the record for the best regular-season in NBA history, a feat that seems easily attainable for a roster boasting of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said that rest will be more important than chasing after the all-time record for most wins in a season.

"Resting, that will take precedence," Kerr said. "We will rest guys if they need it before we will go for any kind of streak or record, that's for sure." It's not a surprising quote from Kerr, as winning the championship will mean far more to them than the win streak. "That is how I assumed he would handle it," Stephen Curry said. "Obviously, the big picture is always the most important trying to win a championship."

Coach Steve Kerr will coach on Friday against the Pacers.

Luke Walton was the best interim coach of all time, but Kerr will be back at the helm today. Walton and Kerr have the same plan with their ball movement and spacing, so there really isn't a fantasy spin here. It'll be great to see Kerr back on the sidelines tonight.

Steve Kerr is planning to return to the Warriors bench on Saturday against the Nuggets.

Kerr's return is contingent upon feeling good after the team's road trip, but he is targeting Saturday for his first game of the year behind the Dubs bench. Luke Walton will continue to serve as interim head coach while Kerr is out, but it's nice to see Kerr feeling better after offseason back surgery.

Steve Kerr said that he won't be coaching a game until January, but he will be traveling with the Warriors on their upcoming two-game road trip.

Kerr is making good progress, and was even able to run Tuesday's practice with Luke Walton staying at home with an illness. He's getting close.

Steve Kerr said he hopes to return to the Warriors within the next 2-3 weeks.

"What I've learned is that I miss it," Kerr said in a hallway near the team's locker room. "I'm still hoping in the next two to three weeks to be back on the bench." The wins continue to pile up in Golden State making it easier for Kerr to take his time as he recovers from two offseason back surgeries.

Steve Kerr said that he believes he'll be back as the head coach of the Warriors at some point this season, and he’ll use the Dubs upcoming home stand as a measure to gauge his progress.

"I think I'll be back," said Kerr. "I don't know exactly when, but I think I will be back coaching again this season." Kerr remains without an official timetable to return, but he continues to show up for the Dubs practices and he's reportedly shown signs of improvement recently. The Dubs have lost just one game in his absence, so there's not exactly a rush for him to return to the pine.

Steve Kerr said that his back is fine, but he's still experiencing headaches and other side effects from his two back surgeries that he underwent during the offseason and there's still no official timetable for his return.

With the Warriors off to a record breaking 19-0 start, Kerr is probably in no rush to return to the sidelines. He's still a regular presence during the Dubs' practices, and has regular communication with current interim head coach Luke Walton.

Steve Kerr traveled with the Warriors for the first time this season for their road game in Los Angeles.

"It’s great, obviously. He had a phenomenal message to the guys," interim head coach Luke Walton said ahead the marquee matchup between the Warriors and Clippers. "It’s nice having him around at home all of the time, so it’s a good feeling to have him with us on the road." Kerr remains on a leave of absence, but perhaps this is a sign that he's getting close to being able to return to the bench. Walton has filled in admirably in Kerr's absence, guiding the defending champs to a 12-0 start.
