The NBA’s Summer League is the first opportunity for newly drafted rookies to show what they’ve got. It’s also an opportunity for rookie head coaches to some experience under their belts. Newly hired Golden State Warriors’ head coach Steve Kerr will follow in the footsteps of Jason Kidd and Jeff Hornacek and coach the Dubs in the Las Vegas Summer League, according to Monte Poole of CSN Bay Area. Prior to Kidd and Hornacek, the role of Summer League coach was usually reserved for assistant coaches. Now that there are so many rookie head coaches entering the league without previous experience, expect to see more head coaches take the reigns in the Summer League to iron out some kinks in their methods. The Las Vegas Summer League starts on July 11 at Thomas & Mack Center and Cox Pavillion. The post Golden State Warriors: Steve Kerr will Coach in Summer League appeared first on Standing O Sports and was written by Mike Lucas.
