Warriors’ Bob Myers could be recruited away by west rivals

Six clubs in the NBA are either searching for new play-callers or have already hired them for the upcoming season, which has set the coaching carousel in motion. And even if Steve Kerr is committed to the Golden State Warriors (at least for another year), the team may still have a significant leadership gap in the future.

organization president Bob Myers is entering the final month of his contract with the Warriors without an extension in place after 12 years, six Finals appearances, and four championships with the organization.

If Myers decides to leave the Bay Area, he might take some much-needed R&R with his wife and three girls or perhaps focus more of his time and energy on his podcast, Lead By Example, which debuted in January.

Some residents of Dub Nation, though, are also concerned that he would try to start over with a different franchise. To that end, there might be a position available with a competing club, one that has a roster that is ready for the playoffs and a desirable location in Southern California.

If Myers Does Stay in the GM Game (With the Warriors or Another Team), He’s Getting Paid

It’s probably safe to argue that at this stage in his career, Myers is in a position to choose the best course of action for himself and his family, regardless of if doing so means forgoing a sizable salary. But make no mistake, that payday will come if he decides to continue working in the front office.

Warriors owner Joe Lacob is prepared to spend a ton of money to retain Myers in the Bay Area, according to a report from Yahoo Sports’ Jake Fischer earlier this month.

“Six weeks still remain until Myers’ contract expires June 30, affording plenty of wiggle room for the Warriors and Myers to eventually come to an agreement, which league personnel are expecting to surpass $10 million in annual salary,” wrote Fischer.

Ballmer is not the only NBA owner who has the means to lavish incredible sums on the Dubs’ designer, though.
