6:23pm: The Warriors are finalizing a contract extension with head coach Steve Kerr, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN writes. The new deal will make him one of the highest paid coaches in the NBA.
The extension will build onto the reigning champion bench boss’ existing five-year contract, which he signed for a total of $25MM back in 2014. That was Kerr’s first contract as a head coach in the NBA, the retired player having previously served as an analyst and executive.
In four seasons with the Warriors franchise, Kerr’s squad has sported a legendary .808 winning percentage, claiming three titles along the way.
