Shams Charania of The Athletic claimed that Bob Myers, president of basketball operations for the Golden State Warriors, had not had meaningful contract extension discussions with the business for months.
According to league insiders, there hasn’t been any progress on a new pact since both sides exchanged offers and counter-offers several months ago, as stated in a report published on Wednesday by Charania. Even a competitive market offer from a company at the top of the executive food chain, which the Warriors have not yet made to Myers, may not be enough to keep him with the team, which he joined in April 2011 as an assistant general manager before being promoted to GM in April 2012.
Additionally, Charania posted this information on Instagram, where Warriors forward Draymond Green expressed his displeasure:
Myers has played a crucial role in the Warriors’ dynasty, and the primary players of Golden State are all close friends with him. It’s important to keep an eye on his potential departure during what might be a pivotal offseason.
Players like Green are not pleased with Myers’ departure, as he made apparent in his Instagram statement. With several different Warriors players, there are numerous contractual issues to work out, and Myers has always taken the lead in figuring out how to get around them.
