Mark Jackson and the Golden State Warriors have not begun discussing a contract extension.

Jackson signed a three-year deal with a team option for the fourth with the Warriors during the 2011 offseason meaning he is without a deal past the upcoming 13-14 season.

"No. And my feelings are, that’ll take care of itself. I don’t get caught up in it. It will truly take care of itself.

"I’m thrilled to have a job and to coach this group of guys…  and with great ownership, a great front office and fan base. It’ll play itself out."

Jackson was also asked if he can take credit for the Brooklyn Nets' decision to hire Jason Kidd without any previous coaching experience.

"No," said Jackson "I think at the end of the day Jason Kidd is an all-time great player who I’ve got a lot of respect for.

"I’ve talked to him often. He reached out and thanked me and we’ve had great dialogue. I just think he’s going to do very well. I’m happy for him. I think it was a great hire for the Nets.

"That being said, I think it’s now up to Jason to open the door for the next guy to prove that the naysayers are wrong.
