Assistant coach Ron Adams has been credited for improving the jumpers of Rajon Rondo and Derrick Rose among others. He played the role of Brad Stevens' right hand man throughout the 2013-2014 season. Unfortunately, his brief tenure in Boston may already be coming to a close.
According to MassLive.com's Jay King the Celtics have given Adams permission to interview for a place on Golden State's new-look staff (featuring fresh head coach Steve Kerr). Adams has not described a desire to move on, but rather intends to explore his options. He likely prefers to work for a contender in what may be his final years of coaching.
The Boston Globe's Baxter Holmes reported that no offer has been extended to Adams, and he is just "doing his due diligence."
Undoubtedly, the loss of Adams would be significant. He has been known as a defensive genius as well as a shot doctor, and has built strong relationships with several of Boston's players.
The sixty-six-year-old Adams still has two years left on his contract with the Celtics. Stay tuned for more news on Adams this week.
