Chris Mullin more likely to be fired than last the season?

 

He was doing that bad of a job?  Can't put all the blame on him, right?

We already know Chris Mullin isn't coming back next year.

But the fact is, he's more likely to get fired this season than finish out the final year of his contract as executive vice president of basketball operations.

That’s clearly the most logical thing to take away from the news that Don Nelson is negotiating a contract extension … probably a two-year job with an option for a third.

C’mon, the writing is on the wall. And it’s in Sharpie.

Nelson and Mullin are both on the final years of their contracts. Nelson is negotiating an extension; Mullin isn’t.

Whether Nelson's contract extension is for solely coaching doesn't really even matter. Nellie will emerge with most of the power.

If Nelson is walking around the Warriors’ offices with a new deal, and Mullin is walking around without one or not walking around the offices at all, then it means Nelson is making the basketball decisions.

Keep an eye on the team’s moves in the next couple of days. They may be telling.

Conventional wisdom has it that the Warriors are trying to figure out whether to make their last cut Anthony Morrow or Rob Kurz.

But there’s another player who is on shaky ground: Point guard Marcus Williams.

The problem with Williams is that he has a guaranteed contract, and he is a player Mullin brought in from New Jersey in a deal for a conditional pick.

Nelson can barely contain his disdain for Williams. If money weren’t an issue, I guarantee you Williams would already be gone.

Money is an issue, though, and cutting Williams would cost the Warriors some.

It's the kind of move Nelson could only really pull off if he's got some clout.
