According to Michael McCarthy of Front Office Sports, former Warriors president of basketball operations Bob Myers is in preliminary discussions with ESPN about joining the network’s NBA coverage.
After 12 seasons and four championships, Myers announced his resignation earlier this week. He was rumored to have other interests outside managing a team, including potentially working in the media.
Before joining the Warriors, Myers worked as a player agent, representing players including Brandon Roy, Tyreke Evans, and Kendrick Perkins.
According to league sources, Myers may decide to embark on a different professional path even though some reports claim he will take a year off before returning to a GM position with another team.
Regarding ESPN, Myers is well connected there. Perkins, a studio analyst, is among them.
Early this year, he collaborated with ESPN and Peyton Manning’s Omaha Productions to develop a new podcast called Lead by Example, McCarthy wrote. He drew notable visitors, including California Governor Gavin Newsom, Disney CEO Bob Iger, and NBA Commissioner Adam Silver.
