Bob Myers, one of the most successful NBA executives of the past decade, has announced that he is stepping down as the President and General Manager of the Golden State Warriors. This news has come as a shock to many basketball fans as Myers played a significant role in building one of the best NBA dynasties with the Golden State Warriors. He has been with the team since 2011, when he was assistant gm. He was promoted to gm in 2012 and then elevated to President and GM in 2019.

“It’s just time,” Myers told ESPN. Myers’ tenure with the Warriors was marked by numerous accomplishments and accolades, including five consecutive NBA Finals appearances (2015-2019) and four NBA championships (2015, 2017, 2018, and 2022). He was also named Executive of the Year twice.

Myers was offered an ownership stake in the team, but he declined and stated that he wanted to take some time off from basketball operations. His contract was set to expire this summer, so his departure was not entirely unexpected.

What’s Next For Bob Myers?

It is uncertain what’s next for Bob Myers and the Golden State Warriors. Myers said that he does not know what his professional future holds. If he chooses to return to basketball operations, he will undoubtedly be a highly sought-after executive.

Myers is adept at building NBA teams and has a keen eye for talent. Myers will have a news conference scheduled for 4 p.m. ET Tuesday in San Francisco. A native of the bay area, Myers is well-loved and even played basketball at UCLA.

What’s Next For The Warriors?

As for the Golden State Warriors, they will need to find a replacement for Myers quickly as the NBA offseason is just around the corner. Myers’ successor will have big shoes to fill and a tough act to follow, considering what Myers has accomplished in his time with the Warriors.

It is anticipated that the Warriors owner Joe Lacob will attempt to elevate Kirk, an executive VP of basketball operations and his son, as well as Mike Dunleavy Jr., a vice president of basketball operations, into more pivotal roles.

The Warriors are facing a challenging intersection where they have to make tough choices in order to manage their payroll and luxury tax. It may reach an unprecedented amount of $500 million by 2023-2024. This necessitates making crucial decisions about the future of important players such as Draymond Green and Klay Thompson.

Green and Thompson hope to extend their stay with the Warrior. Green’s contract contains a player option that runs until 2023-2024; Thompson’s current deal expires after this season. Both players are keen on securing profitable extensions from the team.
