It most likely seemed that Kenny Atkinson was going to make a move to the Charlotte Hornets to be their head coach. But that was before they secured their 4th NBA title in 8 years. But now he has changed his mind and will be staying back as the top assistant for Steve Kerr, putting down the offer made by the Hornets.
The Warriors are very happy about the decision made by Atkinson. Andrew Wiggins, the Warriors' wing said that it means a lot. He gave up the head coaching position and decided to stay with us, it is amazing. He further said that it shows that they have people who want to be winners. He also added that they are on the same page and are looking forward to the future.
