Steve Kerr was set to travel to Tokyo, Japan this summer to be an assistant coach on Gregg Popovich's Team USA staff.
But that will have to wait after the International Olympic Committee and Tokyo Olympic organizers agreed Tuesday to postpone the the 2020 summer games until 2021 due to the global coronavirus pandemic.
The Warriors coach was a guest on Howard Beck's "The Full 48" podcast Monday, and was asked for his feelings on the Olympics being postponed.
"It's a mix of sort of disappointment for sure, but also this is the least of anybody's worries, Kerr said. "Everything has to be taken sort of with relative concern, obviously because people have so much to worry about out there just trying to make ends meet and so many jobs on the line and so many struggling to make rent payments or take care of their kids or whatever.
"So you have to couch any sort of disappointment professionally with the perspective of what's happening in the real world. It's unfortunate, but hopefully, this is something that will be happening next summer and hopefully we'll still be coaching the team next summer. We don't know. Nobody knows anything at this stage. But we'll just wait and see."
