Another good link today, this time from CSN Bay Area’s Matt Steinmetz, who has a detailed look at Joe Lacob’s upcoming decisions on what to do with Warriors coach Don Nelson, general manager Larry Riley and president Robert Rowell. I won’t give away all the details here, but Steinmetz’s take is replace Nelson with assistant Keith Smart, keep Riley and keep Rowell around, but change his title and put him in charge of aiding with the new owners’ transition period.
It’s a great read. Read the entire article here.
Here’s an excerpt I particularly liked:
Lacob talks a few times each day to Riley, and by all accounts Lacob has been on board with Riley’s moves. Lacob, a self-described hoops fan, loves talking ball and has made it clear he’ll be involved. That would seem to bode well for Riley, who’s more than willing to be inclusive when it comes to Lacob. In other words, why does Lacob want to bring in a big-time GM (Read: Kevin Pritchard) if he fancies himself an owner who knows the game and wants to dabble?
