CAVS HIRING WARRIORS ASSISTANT ATKINSON AS NEW COACH



Steve Kerr and the Warriors will need a new lead assistant coach for the 2024-25 NBA season. Kenny Atkinson is set to be hired as the new coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers, Adrian Wojnarowski and The Athletic's Shams Charania. Atkinson and the Cavaliers still are working on contract details, with a deal expected to be finalized "soon." Atkinson spent the last three seasons as Kerr's assistant coach after spending one season with the Los Angeles Clippers.

The 57-year-old Atkinson has one previous head coaching job, having spent four seasons guiding the Brooklyn Nets, where he amassed a 118-190 regular-season record. They reached the NBA playoffs once during his tenure (2018-19) but lost to the Philadelphia 76ers in the first round.
