The Warriors missed out on David Blatt when he became the Cavaliers’ head coach, but Golden State got its other remaining target – Celtics assistant Ron Adams.

Mark Murphy of BostonHerald.com:

Adams, about to turn 67 and excited about an opportunity to move back to his home state of California, today accepted an offer from Golden State to join Steve Kerr’s Warriors staff.

The Warriors – Clippers pending – might have the best assistant-coaching staff in the NBA.

Gentry, especially since working under Mike D’Antoni with the Suns, is a strong offensive coach. Adams is a strong defensive mind. They should complement each other well and give Kerr a good chance to succeed.

I had – and still have – plenty of questions about Kerr, but the Warriors are backing him well.

Boston will surely miss Adams, but he at least already helped Brad Stevens adjust to the NBA. Even if the Celtics can’t replace him with a coach of the same caliber, they at least already got that value from Adams.

Now, Adams can help do the same for Kerr.

    Quality coaching is very important in the NBA. They got a good one.

    Will Ewing ever get a real chance?
