The Warriors reached an agreement in principle with Ron Adams to become an assistant coach Sunday after he spent this past season in a similar role with the Boston Celtics.
"They have a lot of promising players," Adams said of the Warriors in an interview with the Boston Herald. "For me it's a chance to work with some very good young players."
Adams was previously an NBA assistant coach for Chicago (2004-07, 2010-13), Oklahoma City (2008-10), Milwaukee (1998-2003), San Antonio (1992-94) and Philadelphia (1994-96).
Adams became the second veteran head coach to reach agreement on joining Steve Kerr's staff. Adams coached his alma mater, Fresno Pacific, in 1972 and Fresno State from 1986-90.
Alvin Gentry, who is finalizing a contract to become the Warriors' associate head coach, led Phoenix while Kerr was the general manager there.
