The Warriors and general manager Bob Myers agreed to a three-year extension on Thursday.

His deal was due to expire following the 2014-15 season since taking over the job back in April 2012. Myers has helped turned the Warriors around with moves like the Andrew Bogut-Monta Ellis deal as well as doing well in free agency and drafting guys like Draymond Green.

Steve Kerr said on Thursday that he is not expecting the Warriors to make any major roster changes in the wake of the Kevin Love deal.

"All indications are that this is the group we’re going forward with, but you never say never," Kerr said. "I’m coaching the team that’s here, but there’s no question that we feel very confident and comfortable with the group that we have." It will be interesting to see how Kerr's first year on the job will go with an established core already in place.

Celtics assistant coach Ron Adams has agreed to leave Boston to join the Warriors as an assistant under Steve Kerr.

Adams, who hails from California, was reportedly drawn by the chance to coach for a championship contender in his home state. Kerr recently added veteran coach Alvin Gentry to his staff, giving him a deep well of NBA knowledge from which to draw during his rookie season as an NBA head coach.

Warriors GM Bob Myers stated that the chances of making a big trade between now and the draft are "unlikely."

"I think probably right now unlikely... But I will say this, if you asked me last year at this time would we be in a situation to grab an Iguodala, I would’ve said the same thing... but I could get up from this little caucus and five minutes later my phone rings and it’s a deal that I hadn’t thought of, nobody had thought of, and all of a sudden you’re going down that path."

Jerry West believes that with new coach Steve Kerr, the Warriors offense will run less isolation plays, and be more predicated on ball movement.

"I think you’ll see more players involved offensively," West said. "I think we won’t have as many isolation plays now." One criticism to Mark Jackson was his rather simplistic offense, so with the hiring of Steve Kerr it seems that the Warriors will be looking to get away from the heavy isolation sets, and have an offense that is more about movement and cutting.

The Warriors will be interviewing Celtics top assistant coach Ron Adams for a spot on Steve Kerr's bench, sources say.

Adams still has two years left on his contract with Boston, but at 67 years old, he may be looking to finish his career on a non-rebuilding team i.e. Golden State. It's not certain whether he will accept the job, but Adams is doing his due diligence, and is open to hearing the Warriors proposition. Adams is a players coach, and spent the last year working on Avery Bradley's shooting mechanics, which led to a marked improvement in the Boston guard's field goal and 3-point shooting percentages.

Steve Kerr will coach the Warriors during the Las Vegas Summer League in July.

The move will allow Kerr to bond with the team's young players, while giving him some experience pacing the sidelines as a head coach. Although he's been tight-lipped about his search for assistants, Maccabi Tel Aviv coach David Blatt has emerged as a possible candidate.

Steve Kerr said it's "not accurate" to say a verbal commitment existed between himself and Phil Jackson.

"We were very, very close," Kerr said. "I thought I was coming there.’’ Jackson said Kerr gave him a verbal commitment around the firing of Mark Jackson and the prevailing thought around the league was the Knicks were going to sign him. Obviously, that didn't work out and Kerr will coach the Warriors on a five-year, $25 million deal.

Phil Jackson said coach Steve Kerr verbally committed to the Knicks' job the day before Kerr took the coaching job at Golden State.

Jackson added he told Carmelo Anthony that Kerr was coming to coach the team. There was a sense around the NBA that Kerr spurned the Knicks badly, so this report is not surprising. The Warriors offered $25 million over five years and their location was another major selling point.

During his introductory press conference, new Warriors coach Steve Kerr said that the team "could use a stretch [power forward]."

"I think a shooting [power forward] could really make things difficult on the opposition," Kerr said. David Lee is under contract through 2016 and it's a given that Golden State will pick up Draymond Green's $915k salary next season, but neither of them fit the mold of a stretch-four. "Draymond's terrific," said Kerr. "Right now, from what I see, he's perfect in the role he's been in -- jack of all trades." There aren't many sweet-shooting PFs available as free agents this summer, though Matt Bonner and Anthony Tolliver will be available.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said that his offense "will be influenced by the Triangle [offense]," but he will still use "plenty" of screen-and-rolls with Stephen Curry.

"[The Warriors' offense] will not look like the Bulls of the '90s, I can tell you that," Kerr said. "But we have the opportunity to make some strides offensively and I think that will be reflected in my influences — which have been [Gregg] Popovich and Phil [Jackson] and Lenny Wilkens ... They've all been coaches who emphasized ball movement, spacing and flow and having a system to rely on." Golden State ranked 12th in the NBA for Offensive Efficiency last season, which should only improve with Kerr installing a more dynamic offense.

Steve Kerr has accepted the Warriors' head coaching job, according to David Aldridge of NBA.com.

Wow. It's expected to be a five-year, $25 million deal, according to Yahoo! Sports. The Knicks and Kerr were apparently working out the contract details and Golden State has just swooped in at the last minute. The allure of staying on the west coast to remain closer to his family may have helped while the Warriors are also a better team on the court. On the flip side, the Knicks can't be excited about this with Kerr turning down Phil Jackson's offer. One would think Kerr's history of shooting triples should translate to the Warriors remaining as one of the most three-happy team in the NBA.

Negotiations between the Knicks and head coach candidate Steve Kerr have been in the "final stages" for at least a week, sources tell ESPN.

The Warriors are making one more attempt to sway Kerr to sign with Golden State, but ESPN's source would be "shocked" if he doesn't end up in New York. Kerr has a great relationship with Knicks president Phil Jackson and is reportedly enamored with the chance to install the triangle offense in the Big Apple.

The Warriors will make a "final push" to hire Steve Kerr as their head coach, according to Yahoo! Sports, and they're expected to meet with Kerr in Oklahoma City this week.

Kerr is "weighing all his options," according to his agent, and the Knicks are reluctant to "overpay" him -- Kerr is reportedly seeking a five-year deal worth around $25 million, but New York would prefer a shorter deal. With Kerr leaning toward New York, and Stan Van Gundy close to a deal with Detroit, the Warriors may miss out on their top two options to replace Mark Jackson.
