The Warriors reportedly have been out of the picture with coaching candidate Steve Kerr for several days and were scheduled to interview Stan Van Gundy and Lionel Hollins for the job.
The Warriors have not formally offered the job to Kerr and are turning their attention to others at a time when the New York Knicks are the front-runners to become the TNT broadcaster's next employer, according to the New York Post.
Hollins led Memphis to three straight playoff appearances and an appearance in the 2013 Western Conference finals before parting ways with the Grizzlies.
Van Gundy, who began doing work for the NBC Sports Group after the Orlando Magic fired him in 2012, told NBC Sports Radio the day after the Warriors fired Mark Jackson that the Golden State job had positives to it. They included the talent on the roster, the supportive fan base and the location.
"There aren't many better places to live in the United States than the Bay Area in California," said Van Gundy, who went to high school in Martinez.
Van Gundy said he could sense that there was "not a lot of synergy" between Jackson and the Warriors' ownership and management based on comments from both sides.
"They're going to have a lot of very good people interested, but it's a matter of fit I think from both sides," Van Gundy said of the Warriors job. "And I think that's what's key in coaching jobs.
"It's not going to work if there's not some common ground on philosophy, on the culture you want around the team, on the way things are going to be done, and clearly that was the problem in Golden State. They were not on the same page with Mark. Mark was effective, very effective in the way he did things, but it didn't meet the way their front office wanted it done. They're going to have to find that fit."
