Yahoo Sources: Golden State coach Mark Jackson has forced a reassignment of assistant coach Brian Scalabrine. http://yhoo.it/1hnglEy
Dysfunctional Warriors: Jackson's power play
Ownership and management have been strong advocates of Scalabrine and his performance on the job, sources told Yahoo Sports. Nevertheless, Warriors officials decided that as long as Jackson is the head coach, he'll have control of his coaching staff.
Over the past two years, Jackson's difficulty with managing his coaching staff and creating a functional work environment has developed into one of the issues that threatens his future on the job, league sources said.
Jackson, in his third year at the helm of the Warriors, has one year left on his contract, but has come under increased scrutiny within the organization for how he has run the team and worked on the job. There have been no conversations about an extension for Jackson – nor are they expected to take place, sources said.
Not good for Golden State, when your coach is already thinking about greener pastures. Sounds like Mark is looking at teams that are already gonna contend for a championship rather than building one in Golden State... wow... Wonder what Curry and Thompson and Barnes think about all this. Despite their off-season the Warriors aren't that much better than they were last year and are 2 losses away from being out of the playoffs so.... there's that too.
