Report: Kevin Ollie Wants More Money Than Steve Kerr To Jump To NBA

If this report is true, Kevin Ollie is one confident man.

According to Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal, if Ollie decides to leave UConn for the NBA, he’ll want a contract larger than what Steve Kerr signed with the Golden State Warriors.

One source with knowledge of at least one team’s coaching search said Ollie will want a contract larger than the five-year, $25 million deal the Golden State Warriors handed Steve Kerr.

The reasoning is simple: Ollie has a longer record of success and accomplished more (won a national title) than Kerr has as a head coach. This is Kerr’s first head-coaching job.

Ollie has previously stated that he wants to be at UConn but that he would listen to NBA offers, and he is reportedly in the middle of renegotiating his contract with the university.
