(San Francisco) Bob Myers won’t be back as president and general manager of the Golden State Warriors after assembling a team that won four championships in eight seasons and reached the NBA Finals in five straight seasons from 2015 to 2019.
Myers’ contract expires at the end of June and will not be renewed. A team spokesperson confirmed Myers’ departure on Tuesday.
Myers was named the Warriors general manager in 2012 and the team won its first championship in 40 years in 2015 against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The Warriors also triumphed in 2017 and 2018, also against the Cavaliers. They lost in the Finals in 2016 to the Cavaliers and in 2019 to the Toronto Raptors.
They won back their title in 2022 against the Boston Celtics.
Led by coach Steve Kerr and star player Stephen Curry, the Warriors also benefited from the acquisition of Kevin Durant in 2016 to become an NBA dynasty.
Myers, 48, is known for being involved in the day-to-day work of coaches and players, which is rare for a general manager. He also did not hesitate to talk to the players during the matches.
