The Warriors coaching staff also echoed Brett’s statements about the fit to the Falcons program.

“Brett is a great 200 foot player, and Bentley is getting a player that is dedicated on and off the ice,” said Warriors Associate Head Coach/GM Brent Gough, “We are extremely excited for this opportunity for Brett.
