Warriors’ GM Bob Myers stepping down after 11 seasons and 4 NBA Championships


Golden State Warriors GM Bob Myers told ESPN on Tuesday that he will step down as president of basketball operations and general manager of the organization when his contract expires at the end of June. Myers has spent the past 12 years with the Warriors, and became their general manager in April 2012. Myers told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski that he declined ownership’s offers on a new deal that would have placed him among the NBA’s top-earning executives.

During his time with the Warriors, Myers hired Steve Kerr, drafted Draymond Green, signed Andre Iguodala, and assisted in signing Kevin Durant in the summer of 2016.  Under his helm, the Warriors grew into the most successful team of the past decade of NBA history, winning four championships and reaching the NBA Finals six times. Golden State also set the regular-season wins record by going 73-9 during the 2015-16 season, and Myers won the NBA’s executive of the year award in both 2015 and 2017. The Warriors lost in the second round to the Los Angeles Lakers this season, their first playoff loss before the Finals under Kerr.
