Draymond Green could leave Warriors after Bob Myers’ exit

For the Golden State Warriors, May 30, 2023, might very well be the final game of a certain era. No one in the organization or a fan of the team wanted to hear Bob Myers’ update on his NBA future, which he finally shared. He has made the decision to leave the franchise, claiming that the time is now.

When his deal with the Warriors expires in June, Myers will have left a significant legacy in the Bay Area. As one of the most well-known player agents in the NBA when he joined the team in 2011, he managed one of the greatest basketball dynasties ever.

The Warriors were able to reach the NBA Finals six times in 12 seasons, winning four of those games. He had a lasting impression on numerous individuals and team members throughout the firm, and without him, significant changes might be imminent.

Draymond Green possibly leaving could be one of those adjustments. Upon hearing the news, Green gushed over Myers in his conversation with Sportsnaut.

“He means the world to me,” Green told Sportsnaut. “Working with him has been a complete honor. He’s great. He knows the business and I learn from him. To say that doesn’t matter, it’s a lie. Of course, it matters. But there’s a bunch of things to take into account. Yes, that is one of the things that matters. All right? But ultimately, I can’t hinge my whole decision on that. But f— right it matters.”

The work Myers has accomplished with the Warriors is truly outstanding. Before he joined the organization, Golden State was hardly a consistent playoff team, let alone a contender. They are currently one of the league’s premier teams, led by Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Green.

While Myers is well-known for his basketball skills, his influence extends beyond the court. Green praised him much, saying that he had helped him through some difficult periods both on the field and off it.

“He’s always seen the good in me and appreciated what I give to the table and coached me through some of the roughest moments in my life,” Green told Sportsnaut. “For that, I am forever thankful and am forever indebted to him. You don’t find genuine people who care outside of what you bring to your life. He is one of those people. No matter what, no matter of anything that is going on with me, if it puts him in a bind, that was never his priority. His priority was for me and for my well-being. And for that, I’m forever indebted.”

The team’s first significant choice without Myers in the mix will be Green. After the Warriors were successful in reaching long-term agreements with Jordan Poole and Andrew Wiggins during the previous summer, Klay Thompson will come next.

Despite the speculation around his future, Green has made one thing abundantly apparent. Although the loss of Myers stings and will have an effect on his choice, his desire to play his entire career for Golden State has not changed.

“I want to be a Warrior for the rest of my life,” said the 33-year-old Green following his 11th NBA season. “I want to ride out with the same dudes I rode in with. We put the work in to make that happen.”

Anyone’s guess as to whether or not it occurs at this time. Whoever accepts the position and the level of interest Green can generate in the open market will have an impact on that choice. In many respects, he is the Warriors’ heart and soul as a leader and tone-setter, despite some setbacks. It would be difficult for Golden State to recover from losing him after also losing Myers.
