Bob Myer’s future with The Warriors remain uncertain

Warriors president of basketball operations Bob Myers, whose contract expires at the end of next month, “plans to take a couple of weeks” to determine what he wants to do in the future, telling ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski that he’s “torn” on returning largely due to his close relationships with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and head coach Steve Kerr.

That aligns with a recent report from Ramona Shelburne of ESPN, who heard from sources that Myers was going to take some time before coming to a decision.

Owner Joe Lacob offered Myers substantial contract proposals that would have allowed him the freedom to take time off if he so wished. This is an intriguing detail in Shelburne’s report that got missed in the hoopla. It’s obvious from the context that the team is aware of Myers uncertain professionsl path.

According to Marc Stein’s most recent piece at Substack, Myers is the member of that steadfast core group who is most likely to leave the Warriors. According to Stein, if Myers doesn’t re-sign, there is a “strong expectation” within the club that he will take “at least” the 2023–24 season off to spend time with his family rather than work in a rival front office.

Myers, a former UCLA basketball player and sports agent who has served as an executive with the Warriors since 2011, earning four titles, is a two-time Executive of the Year. According to a recent article from The Athletic, VP of basketball operations Mike Dunleavy Jr. might replace Myers if he decides not to come back.
