On Tuesday evening, Luke Walton was reportedly finalizing an agreement to become an assistant coach with the Warriors.

On Thursday afternoon, he confirmed the news to 95.7 The Game.

"Coach Kerr and myself started talking a couple weeks back," Walton told Damon Bruce, "And he offered the job about a week ago.

And then I was talking to a couple other teams as well ... and Golden State and the organization that they have up there and the coaching staff that Steve Kerr put together felt like the best fit.

We worked out the deal and now I'm thrilled to be a member of that staff and that organization."
