Warriors President of Basketball Operations / General Manager Bob Myers to Step Down From His Role

Two-Time Executive of the Year Helped Golden State Capture Four NBA Championships

Golden State Warriors President of Basketball Operations / General Manager Bob Myers will step down from his role at the conclusion of his contract, he announced today.

Bob Myers to Step Down From His Role With Warriors

Myers, who has served as general manager of the Warriors for the past 11 seasons (seven with the added title of president of basketball operations), assembled a roster that captured four NBA titles (2015, 2017, 2018, 2022) in an eight-year span and made six NBA Finals appearances, including five straight from 2015-2019, along with setting an NBA record with 73 wins during the 2015-16 regular season. Myers earned the NBA Executive of the Year award in both 2014-15 and 2016-17 and is the only executive in Warriors history to earn the award multiple times and one of only five in league history to earn the honor twice in a span of three seasons. Myers’ 11-season tenure as general manager (2012-23) equals the longest stretch by a lead basketball executive in franchise history, matching Eddie Gottlieb (1952-63) and Bob Feerick (1963-74).

Thank You, Bob Myers

During his tenure as general manager the Warriors have enjoyed their most successful stretch in franchise history, posting a .653 regular season winning percentage (571-304) over the last 11 seasons, the best record in the NBA over that stretch. The Warriors earned a franchise-record seven-straight trips to the NBA Playoffs (2013-2019), surpassing the previous record of six, after having qualified for the postseason just once in the previous 18 years.

Throughout Myers’ tenure, the Warriors have retained many of their top draft picks, signing Stephen Curry, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson, Kevon Looney and Jordan Poole to contract extensions. Additionally, Myers acquired 2015 NBA Finals MVP Andre Iguodala via trade in 2013, signed 2017 & 2018 NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant in 2016, and acquired Andrew Wiggins via trade in 2020.

Besides acquiring and retaining key players, Myers hired Head Coach Steve Kerr on May 19, 2014. Kerr was named the NBA’s Coach of the Year in 2014-15 and ranks second in franchise history with 473 regular season wins (trailing only Al Attles) to go along with a franchise-record 99 postseason victories.

Myers originally joined the Warriors on April 14, 2011, as assistant general manager/vice president of basketball operations, where he worked under then-General Manager Larry Riley before being promoted to general manager on April 24, 2012.
