NEWS: Warriors won't retain Smart as coach
Jaymee Sire was present at the press conference, and reported the following highlights from the conference via Twitter:
Riley says there is not a budget limit on finding a new Warriors coach.
Larry Riley says improving the defense is top priority when finding a replacement, but the Warriors won't necessarily go after a defensive guru.
Joe Lacob says the Golden State Warriors will look for someone with experience, likely NBA head coaching experience, for the next coach. But they won't limit themselves either.
