New Warriors head coach Steve Kerr was a guest on KNBR-680 AM Wednesday morning and was asked the following question:
"Do you think you're going to get him (Harrison Barnes) to fulfill his potential? What is going to be the key to unlock his talent?
"I think he's on track," Kerr said. "He works his butt off. He's extremely talented. We've got a staff here that's in the gym every day for all of our players, not just Harrison.
"We're really working hard with him. That's our job, to help our players become the best they can be, and achieve their dreams and their goals.
Harrison is incredibly driven. So we've got big plans for him this year. We think he can be a great player in this league ... he's going to continue to get better."
