The Golden State Warriors might be pursuing Steve Kerr aggressively for their vacant head coaching position shortly, according to Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowksi:

Van Gundy reportedly has an opportunity to construct and coach a roster in Detroit, and that might be even more appealing than the superior talent in Golden State. 

According to Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News, Van Gundy was the Warriors' top coaching candidate as of Tuesday morning, but "it doesn't sound like they will" re-open negotiations with him, and they will pay top dollar for Kerr.

The Knicks reportedly do not want to pay an exorbitant salary for Kerr, who has no coaching experience.

If all this seems a bit confusing, that's OK. Things keep changing with Kerr and Van Gundy, and the Pistons have muddied things up with their offer of full control. At some point soon, either Kerr or Van Gundy will accept one of these jobs, and that decision will have a domino effect on the rest of the coaching market.
