The source indicated it’s a two-team race between the Knicks and Warriors for Kerr.

Lute Olson, Kerr’s coach at Arizona, remains close to him and said they talk on a regular basis. Olson believes Kerr will have a tough choice to make. “Steve’s daughter [Maddy] is at [Cal-Berkeley],” Olson said by phone Wednesday. “She’s a [volleyball] star. I’m sure that’s tugging at him a little bit. I don’t know what’s going to happen. It’s going to happen pretty quickly.”

Kerr had been expected to decide this week, and all signs pointed to joining the Knicks. But the Warriors’ vacancy could delay things if not change them. Golden State has a better roster than the Knicks, and owner Joe Lacob is fond of Kerr. Team president Rick Welts hired Kerr as Suns president and GM in 2007.
