The Warriors are expected to name Pete Myers as one of their assistant coaches, according to various sources.Myers, who has been with the Chicago Bulls for the past 12 seasons, will join lead assistant Michael Malone on new coach Mark Jackson's staff.Myers was a scout for the Bulls in 2010-11, and was an assistant coach for nine seasons with the team before that. He served as the Bulls interim head coach for two games during the 2003-04 season. Jackson and Myers were teammates on the New York Knicks in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
Jackson indicated on Thursday night after the NBA draft that he was close to bringing in an assistant, but was unwilling to mention Myers' name because he is still under contract for the Bulls.Jackson described Myers -- without using Myers' name -- this way to reporters: "(Myers) is a person that I knew if I ever became a head coach I wanted on my staff."

Thompson has made 182 3-pointers this season which ranks him fifth in the league. 

Draymond Green defends Kyrie Irving: Earth 'may be flat'

Draymond Green defends Kyrie Irving: Earth 'may be flat'

Kyrie Irving became a hot topic at All-Star weekend when the Cavs star point guard said he believes planet Earth is flat. No, really, he did

And it looks like Irving may not be alone. Speaking to the media Saturday, Draymond Green made it known he may be a flat-earth truther too. 

"I don't know. I haven't done enough research, but it may be flat," Green said

For those calling Irving's theory of a flat earth crazy, Green is looking at it in a much different way. 

"I wouldn't necessarily say crazy though," he continued with. "It's just his opinion. It's hard to call someone's opinion crazy, that's what he thinks. 

"Who’s to say that picture [from NASA] is telling the truth? I can make a round picture with my iPhone today, on the panoramic camera, and make it look round. So, I don’t know. I’m not saying I think it’s flat or round, I don’t know, but it could be.”

Green didn't say definitively that the earth is flat like Irving did, but he sure wouldn't say it's round.
