With the Warriors' season nearing its conclusion, the task of finding Luke Walton's replacement should soon reach it's end as well.
And while Kerr has interviewed a wide range of candidates, two former head coaches have emerged as leaders for the Warriors' top assistant coaching job.
Mike Brown and Tyrone Corbin are the "leading names" for the job, according to ESPN.
Brown last roamed the sideline in 2013-14 as the Cavaliers head coach, his second stint with the team. In parts of eight seasons as a head coach with Cleveland and the Los Angeles Lakers, Brown compiled a 347-216 record. During his first tenure with the Cavs, from 2005 to 2010, he coached LeBron James and took Cleveland to the NBA Finals in 2007, where they lost to the Spurs.
Corbin's last coaching stint came during a tumultuous 2014-15 season with the Kings. He started the season as an assistant to Mike Malone, but when the Kings fired Malone, they installed Corbin as the interim head coach. Prior to joining the Kings, Corbin spent parts of four seasons as the head coach in Utah. He has a 119-167 record in five seasons as a head coach.
On May 22, Kerr told CSNBayArea.com that he had compiled a "short list" of candidates. The list included Charlotte Hornets assistant Stephen Silas, who interviewed for the Warriors job between Games 3 and 4 of the Western Conference Finals.
Kerr also reportedly met with Blazers assistant Nate Tibbetts in May.
