The future of Warriors’ general manager, Bob Myers, hangs in the balance as contract extension talks have stalled. With no substantial progress made in months, both Myers and the team are preparing for the possibility of a split.
Although offers and counter-offers were exchanged earlier this year, no agreement has been reached, leaving Myers open to exploring other opportunities. Sources suggest that lucrative positions with private equity firms and roles in other professional sports leagues have caught his attention. There is even speculation of a potential move into the media industry.
Warriors owner Joe Lacob has made multiple contract extension offers, including the option for Myers to take time off if desired. However, Myers remains undecided about his future, leaving talks on hold indefinitely.
The uncertainty surrounding Myers’ contract has led to increased speculation, especially after the Warriors sent Mike Dunleavy Jr., vice president of basketball operations, as their representative to the recent 2023 Draft Lottery.
As the architect of the Warriors’ dynasty, which saw them win four NBA championships in eight years, Myers is expected to receive a significant offer from any suitors. Speculation has grown over whether he will take a year off or potentially join another team, with the Clippers mentioned as a possible destination, via Gery Woelfel of woelfelpressbox.com.
The clock is ticking, and the basketball world eagerly awaits Myers’ decision as his contract expires this summer.
