Warriors Coach Don Nelson Resigns

Comcast SportsNet reports that Golden State Warriors coach Don Nelson has resigned. One of his assistants, Keith Smart, will take over coaching duties this season.

The Breakdown
Fantasy owners loved Nelson for running a high octane offense that produced fantasy goodness for anyone who played consistent minutes. Fantasy owners also hated him for being reluctant to play rookies, benching players randomly, and constantly changing his rotations.

Although Keith Smart worked under Nelson, it's no guarantee he'll continue what Nelson started. Smart may change the offense drastically and may use star players like Stephen Curry and Monta Ellis differently. We'll have to wait and see if the Warriors continue creating fantasy producers out of D-Leaguers.
