As the Warriors search for Luke Walton's replacement, one name appears to be off the board.
Tyrone Corbin, who was a "leading name" for the Warriors' top assistant according to ESPN, is reportedly set the join Earl Watson's staff in Phoenix.
According to Chris Haynes of Cleveland.com, Corbin will join the Suns' staff as an assistant.
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 Tuesday, Warriors GM Bob Myers addressed the team's search for a new assistant.
“That’s something we did look at,” Myers said. “But we didn’t have the amount of attention it deserves because we were still playing.”
“We have some ideas, but it’s not close to conclusion right now,” Myers told reporters.
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.
