The Excel spreadsheets are ready to be exchanged by Bob Myers for a microphone.
The former general manager of the Golden State Warriors, Myers, is close to signing a contract with ESPN, according to Ryan Glasspiegel of the New York Post on Thursday. Myers is anticipated to work as an analyst on “NBA Countdown”.
After 11 years in his position, Myers, 48, abruptly left his position as Warriors general manager earlier this offseason. Former NBA swingman Mike Dunleavy Jr., who served as Golden State’s vice president of basketball operations, has subsequently taken Myers’ post.
Since Myers built four NBA championship teams while serving as the Warriors’ general manager and earned two Executive of the Year Awards, it was widely believed that he would take a vacation from front-office work. With a less demanding job at ESPN, he is now prepared to do precisely that. However, Myers should have some excellent front-office opportunities in front of him before the 2024–25 season.
