OAKLAND -- The Warriors' coaching staff under Steve Kerr will include assistant coaches of player development Jarron Collins and Bruce Fraser.

Collins was a Stanford star alongside twin brother Jason Collins and later played 10 years in the NBA, including one season with Phoenix while Kerr was the Suns' general manager.

Fraser played with Kerr at the University of Arizona and later worked for Kerr as a Suns scout.

The Warriors also officially announced the hiring of associate head coach Alvin Gentry and assistant coaches Ron Adams and Luke Walton.

"We've assembled a terrific coaching and player development staff that will feature a solid mix of experience and youth," Kerr said in a statement. "Alvin and Ron are two highly-respected coaches who provide a wealth of NBA bench experience, which is extremely important to me as I enter my initial season. Luke and Jarron completed productive NBA careers in recent years that were highlighted by an abundance of winning, while Bruce has garnered well-rounded experience and expertise at both the NBA and collegiate levels. I'm really excited about the intangibles these gentlemen will bring to our team and I know they will serve as tremendous assets to me and our players."
