With Klay Thompson out for the season, Steph Curry only playing five games and Draymond Green also missing significant time, Steve Kerr was forced to play Warriors rookies much more than he anticipated this year.
All young players hit a bump in the road throughout the Warriors’ lowly 15-50 season. During Golden State’s minicamp in San Francisco which started last week, Kerr already is seeing major improvements both skill wise and mindset wise from his young players.
“The guys who have finished their rookie year, and now looking forward to their second season, there’s a different level of confidence,” Kerr said Monday on 95.7 The Game’s “Damon, Ratto & Kolsky show. “Jordan Poole, Ky Bowman, Eric Paschall … when you get that first one under your belt, I think it’s a lot easier coming back and knowing what to expect.
“All three of them are looking confident and feeling good.”
