Ron Adams To Remain With Warriors Despite Lakers’ Interest

Highly regarded Warriors assistant coach Ron Adams will remain in Golden State, according to Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN, who reports that Adams has turned down an opportunity to join Frank Vogel‘s Lakers staff.

Adams, who has been an NBA assistant coach since being hired by San Antonio way back in 1992, is considered one of the league’s top defensive minds. He has been a key member of Steve Kerr‘s staff since 2014, having won three titles with the Warriors. He’ll remain with the franchise in a “revised” role, according to Youngmisuk.

Youngmisuk and ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski had reported in June that the Lakers – who previously hired Jason Kidd and Lionel Hollins as assistants – received permission to speak to Adams.

At that time, the ESPN duo suggested that Adams’ interest level in joining the Lakers was unclear, but speculated that L.A. could make a compelling case by extending a “significant financial offer.” Details of the Lakers’ offer aren’t known.

    Smart move…..why leave a comfortable situation where his defensive knowledge is appreciated and practiced rather going to the zoo in LA where nobody gives a hoot about defense

    I’ve been going online everywhere trying to find out what this revised role is. Less workload? Better title? Little more money?

    Usually they would say promotion if it was more money so not sure as he’s getting older… maybe it’s the less workload.
