Warriors expect Bob Myers to take ‘Season’ off, already have likely replacement

When Bob Myers’ contract with the Golden State Warriors expires this summer, a lot of rival NBA teams want him to go. Even then, though, those teams might not be in luck.

The longstanding Warriors general manager Myers is thought to be the person most likely to leave the team this offseason, according to seasoned NBA reporter Marc Stein, who wrote this week on his Substack website. Stein points out that there is a widespread belief in the Bay Area that Myers will delay accepting a new job for at least a season in order to “recharge” with his family.

A sort of gap year would make sense for Myers, whose contract with the Warriors officially expires on June 30. Myers joined the Golden State front office in 2011 after working as a sports agent for more than ten years. The following year, he was elevated to general manager. Myers put together the Warriors squads that appeared in six Finals and took home a total of four championships, winning two NBA Executive of the Year Awards in the process. As a result, a vacation would be well-deserved.

The Warriors appear to already have a potential replacement in mind should Myers leave. But those opponents (like this divisional foe) who have Myers in mind could have to wait until at least the 2024–25 season.
