Don Nelson confirmed what everybody expected, he'll be back to coach the Golden State Warriors next season. He then he dropped a little bit of classic Nellie intrigue by suggesting that he might want to continue coaching instead of retiring after one final season.

After missing the playoffs, Don Nelson hit the beach on Maui to relax and decide whether he wanted to return. A little rest and $5 million guaranteed are enough to get Nellie back. He's vowed to give younger players like Brandan Wright and Marco Bellinelli more playing time.

Nellie is heading into the last year on his Warriors contract. It's been assumed that he'd ride off into the sunset, but now Nellie has opened the door to coming back for more.
