As GM of the Warriors, Myers achieved great success and was twice named NBA Executive of the Year (2014-15 and 2016-17). He hired current coach Steve Kerr in 2014 after the team parted ways with Mark Jackson and oversaw several key moves during his tenure.

Under Myers’ watch, the Warriors drafted some of their core players (Draymond Green, Jordan Poole) and kept their stars (Klay Thompson, Stephen Curry) while making precise moves in free agency (Kevin Durant, DeMarcus Cousins) and trades (Andre Iguodala ). , Andrew Wiggins) to allow the Warriors to win four championships under his watch.

The results have paid off well for the Warriors and Myers. Since the start of the 2012-13 season, Golden State has won four NBA championships, set the mark for wins in a single season (73 in 2015-16), won 50 or more games seven times and 65 or more games three times in that span. span By winning the championship in 2015, the Warriors ended a 40-season drought between NBA titles.

Golden State had won four NBA titles in the last eight seasons before losing to the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2023 Western Conference semifinals. Durant’s arrival in 2016 through free agency was a key part of his tenure as it inspired Golden State to back-to-back titles. But he also made sure franchise icons Thompson, Curry and Green never left the shift, re-signing each of them when the time came.

However, Myers’ future was a topic of discussion throughout the season and after the playoff exit. Not only did his contract expire at the end of June, but Kerr is entering the final year of his contract as well. Kerr told reporters after the season ended that he hoped Myers would remain with the team.

“Right now, Bob’s contract situation is number one because it affects a lot of player decisions that have to be made, contracts, drafts, free agency,” Kerr said. “We’ll get my stuff whenever it happens and I’m in no rush.”

Myers was first hired as an assistant general manager in 2011 and then became the team’s general manager in April 2012. Prior to that, he had served as a general manager at Wasserman Media Group in Los Angeles. He also served as Vice President of SFX Sports, representing numerous NBA players.

Myers graduated from UCLA in 1998 with a degree in business/economics and later received his law degree from Loyola Law School. He was a member of the 1995 NCAA champion UCLA basketball team.
