ESPN is in early talks with former Golden State Warriors general manager Bob Myers, who recently announced his departure after 12 successful years. According to Michael McCarthy of Front Office Sports, the discussions are in initial stages, according to sources.
Myers, a two-time NBA Executive of the Year, is expected to receive offers from other teams as well. Although the details of his role at ESPN are unclear, his addition would be advantageous for the Walt Disney Co. as it negotiates NBA media rights.
Myers could potentially contribute to ESPN’s game or studio coverage, joining programs like “NBA Today” and “NBA Countdown.” Fans eagerly await updates on this potential partnership.
