The Golden State Warriors picked up the option on Jackson's contract for the 2014-15 season on Wednesday. They also seemed positioned for more success with point guard Stephen Curry anchoring a collection of promising young talent, and Jackson has so far found a way to blend them all together perfectly. The Golden State Warriors have picked up the option on coach Mark Jackson's contract for the 2014-15 season. The Warriors and Jackson could still work out a long-term extension this summer. But picking up the option at least ensures Jackson won't enter next season with an expiring contract. Mark Jackson will not be a lame duck coach next season. He took the Warriors from a 23-43 record during the lockout-shortened season his first year to a 47-35 team that earned the Western Conference's sixth seed and eliminated Denver in the first round of the playoffs. Pete Myers, who is already on staff, is expected to be the lead assistant after Mike Malone left to be the Sacramento Kings' head coach.
