The Rockets plan to offer star guard James Harden a contract extension as they look to make themselves a more attractive destination for free agents this offseason, the Houston Chronicle reported Tuesday.
Golden State will get some additional rest before the NBA Finals, which start June 1 at the earliest. But even the added rest may not be enough for Kerr, who told ESPN after Monday night’s win that he’s still “day by day.”
According to the report, Kerr is still experiencing “a significant amount of pain and discomfort” in his back, which required surgery two years ago. Many thought Kerr had been improving as he’s traveled with the team to San Antonio, but he’s not improved to the point where he feels comfortable returning to the bench.
The police report listed the damage caused to the car at $3,150.45, which is a felony. Jackson, however, was given a lesser charge.
Jackson must now enroll in and successfully complete an anger management counseling course by October 31. He will also have to complete a minimum of 20 hours of community service by the same date.
Despite all of the drama off the court, Jackson could be the top pick in this summer’s NBA Draft. He is regarded as the best two-way player in this year’s class after leading the Jayhawks to the Elite Eight as a freshman.
Jackson has called his off-the-court issues “old business,” but NBA teams will likely still vet him intensely during the draft process to make sure he isn’t a high-risk player.
