OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Steve Kerr played golf with Stephen Curry, traveled to Australia to meet with Andrew Bogut and spoke with every other player on the Golden State Warriors in some form or fashion this summer.
Now he hopes to carry those relationships onto the court.
With the Warriors set to open training camp Tuesday, Kerr is counting on his work this offseason to pay off in practice. He has traveled the globe since being hired to replace coach Mark Jackson in May, believing all along that building personal relationships with players would wash away any uneasiness some had because of his popular predecessor's firing.
