The Golden State Warriors don't think they have much of a shot of convincing Steve Kerr to take their vacant head coaching position, as Kerr will likely join the New York Knicks, according to ESPN.com's Marc Stein and Ian Begley:

The Golden State Warriors are increasingly pessimistic about their chances of convincing Steve Kerr to turn down the New York Knicks in favor of Golden State's coaching job, according to sources close to the process.

Sources told ESPN.com that the Warriors fear Kerr is "too deep" in talks with the Knicks and new shot-caller Phil Jackson to convince Kerr to rebuff Jackson now, despite Kerr's close relationship with Warriors owner Joe Lacob and team president Rick Welts, as well as Golden State's proximity to Kerr's offseason home in San Diego.

Stan Van Gundy is "the closest thing to a top target at this early stage of Golden State's search," according to ESPN.

Kerr, who has no head coaching experience, has been highly sought-after and is seeking a rather lucrative salary figure.
