The United States men’s basketball team announced earlier this month that it is actively looking for a new head coach. Gregg Popovich led Team USA to a gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics, but his career is coming to an end. Team USA has reportedly zeroed in on its target, despite the fact that an official decision has yet to be made. Steve Kerr of Golden State has emerged as a favorite to succeed Popovich as head coach of the United States men’s basketball team, according to NBA insider Marc Stein. On this year’s team, he was Popovich’s top assistant. Kerr isn’t the only well-known coach who has been mentioned for this position. Erik Spoelstra, the head coach of the Miami Heat, is a “natural candidate,” according to Stein.

With so much talent on the team, the next head coach must be able to manage multiple stars at the same time. Because of his experience coaching multiple superstars in Golden State, Kerr would be an excellent choice to succeed Popovich. Before the start of the 2021-22 NBA season, an official announcement about Team USA’s next head coach should be made. Nokia News
