Nel­son may be leav­ing Golden State

Los Angeles Times - - Sports - as­so­ci­ated press

Golden State Coach Don Nel­son is ex­pected to part ways with the War­riors on Mon­day, an NBA source told the As­so­ci­ated Press.

The source spoke on con­di­tion of anonymity Thurs­day night be­cause the move prob­a­bly will not be an­nounced un­til the start of the War­riors’ train­ing camp next week.

Nel­son has a record 1,335 vic­to­ries, but he has never led a team to an NBA cham­pi­onship. He broke Lenny Wilkens’ record of 1,332 wins April 7, near the close of the fourth sea­son in his sec­ond stint with the War­riors. The source was not cer­tain whether Nel­son would re­sign or be fired, but the War­riors waited un­til the fi­nal days be­fore camp to make a ma­jor change un­der new own­ers Joe La­cob and Peter Gu­ber. NBA Com­mis­sioner David Stern has ad­vised

Gil­bert Are­nas and the Washington Wizards not to talk about the for­mer All-Star’s gun con­vic­tion. Are­nas has not spo­ken pub­licly since he was sen­tenced in March to one month in a half­way house and two years of pro­ba­tion af­ter plead­ing guilty to a felony gun pos­ses­sion charge.

The Dal­las Mav­er­icks signed free-agent for­ward Steve No­vak, who spent the last two sea­sons with the Clip­pers. Terms were not an­nounced.

An­gel McCoughtry and Swin Casheach scored 16 points to lead the United States to a 99-73 win over Greece in the open­ing round of the women’s world cham­pi­onship at Os­trava, Czech Re­pub­lic.
