Steve Kerr could be back in the general manager’s chair with Warriors

Steve Kerr’s reign as general manager in Phoenix receives a big fat “I” for “Incomplete.” He orchestrated one of the worst trades of the year in 2008 when he acquired Shaquille O’Neal for the run-and-gun Suns, and chose a horrific coach in Terry Porter. But after that, he acquired smart, high-energy guys who worked hard for the coach Kerr then invested in, Alvin Gentry. He helped the Suns reach the Western Conference Finals and even put up a fight against the Lakers for a bit. Then, naturally, Robert Sarver started clutching his purse strings too tight and Kerr showed himself out.
Now, he’s got a much easier life as a commentator on TNT. But he could be headed back to the front office, this time for Golden State.
NBA FanHouse’s Sam Amick reports that new Warriors owner Joe Lacob is “enamored” with Kerr and would love to have him join the staff. Current GM Larry Riley is expected to see a diminished role, even as Lacob has said he won’t remove him all together. Kerr might find the locale to his liking, having lived in San Diego. It gives him a young team, one that operates at a fast pace like the Suns did and could use his experience. It could be a good fit, but only if Kerr wants to jump back in the fire again.

Don't know how i feel about Steven Kerr as our GM!!!
But i'd consider him as Incompetant in how he handled the Amar'E scenario last year..
He didn't get him traded by the deadline which he could of got Anthony Randolph etc last offseason (What a bizaare Triangle where we sent Randolph to NY, Phoenix got nothing for Amar'E who headed to NY & we got David Lee)
But anyways... I say keep Larry Riley hold the position for the time being and see if he can work any deals before the trade deadline (with management approval of course) & then see if that translates into post season success.
