Default Warriors wanted Jerry Sloan or Jeff Van Gundy as next head coach

The Warriors have reached out to former Jazz coach Jerry Sloan and former Knicks and Rockets coach Jeff Van Gundy about their coaching opening, but both declined interviews with the team. In Van Gundy's case, a source close to him said he was "intrigued" by the Warriors' position but didn't want get back into coaching at this time because of family reasons. According to a separate source, Sloan indicated to the Warriors that he was not likely to coach again. CSN Bay Area

The other candidate for the job is former Cleveland Cavaliers coach Mike Brown. The Warriors are said to also have interest in Boston Celtics assistant and former New Jersey Nets head coach Lawrence Frank. It is unknown when in the process the Warriors contacted Sloan and Van Gundy. CSN Bay Area
