Nellie for Three

Warriors coach Don Nelson confirmed today that he has reached an agreement with the Warriors on a two-year extension. He said he hasn’t signed the contract yet, but it’s for two years and in the long run “a little more” than the $5 million he’s making this year. Since much of it is deferred, Nellie said he’d actually be taking a pay cut.
A team source confirmed the 48minutes.net report that the agreement was for two years, $12 million.
Nellie was adamant about now taking over as General Manager or an executive of any type. He said he is hoping Chris Mullin, who is in his last year as executive vice president of basketball operations, gets an extension as well.
More to come on this later.
