Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr believes that Jordan Poole will get better.

Speaking after practice on Tuesday, Kerr said via Yahoo Sports: “Jordan is a young guy, he should be a junior in college and he should be coming into a situation where he’s getting shots of Steph Curry or Klay Thompson; or playing behind those guys, learning from them every day in practice.

“Maybe making an occasional visit to Santa Cruz to get a lot of playing time.

“That’s how ideally you want to raise a young guy, but we don’t have that luxury. So we’re throwing him right into the fire. He’s working his tail off. He’s doing a great job.

“This league is unforgiving for a young player. He’s just gotta keep doing what he’s doing. Keep watching film and keep learning from his experience. He’s gonna get better.

“We have great faith in that because of his ability and his character. He’ll get there but it’s a difficult time for him for sure.” 

Warriors upcoming game will be against Memphis Grizzlies today, November 19 at 7pm CT.
