Scalabrine met with Warriors coach Mark Jackson and team management last week, and conversations have continued in recent days, league sources said.
Scalabrine turned down a chance to join coach Tom Thibodeau's staff with the Chicago Bulls after playing his final NBA season in 2011-'12. After growing in television roles locally on Boston Celtics telecasts and nationally elsewhere, Scalabrine had begun to entertain the possibility of starting a coaching career.
He has spent several weeks this spring working out draft prospects in Los Angeles for agent Arn Tellem.
Scalabrine played 11 NBA seasons, including stops with the Nets, Celtics and Bulls.
