Ex-Warriors GM Bob Myers receives interest from ESPN for broadcasting role following shocking Dubs exit

Bob Myers, who just left his post as the Golden State Warriors’ president, is in a situation where he has a variety of employment options available to him. Surprisingly, one feasible choice goes outside the NBA.

Although the precise position Myers will play for the network is yet unknown, ESPN allegedly expressed early interest in hiring him.

 He would most certainly take center stage in ESPN’s NBA coverage if he accepted the offer. It’s still unknown, though, if Myers would be motivated to take advantage of this chance.

Despite the fact that NBA teams are believed to be interested in him, rumors say that he may be thinking about taking a year off before accepting another head office role.

Bob Myers’ new endeavor after Warriors

ESPN has expressed interest in recruiting Bob Myers to cover the NBA following his resignation as president and general manager of the Golden State Warriors, according to sources.

Although the negotiations are still in their early stages, Myers is also likely to receive offers from other NBA teams. Myers’ prospective inclusion would benefit Walt Disney Co. in impending media talks for NBA rights even if it’s unclear how he would specifically fit into ESPN’s NBA coverage.

With Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, and coach Steve Kerr, Myers was a major player in the Warriors’ spectacular run. Myers has past ties to ESPN and even collaborated with them to produce a podcast earlier this year. The Warriors must now make difficult choices as they manage their roster and finances.

Why did Myers leave Warriors?

Bob Myers, the president and general manager of the Golden State Warriors, has made it known that he will leave the organisation at the conclusion of the current campaign when his contract ends. Myers, a member of the Warriors since 2011, was essential in helping the team win four NBA titles.

Myers had a news conference to announce his choice, explaining that he would no longer be able to carry out his duties going ahead. Given the rumours of potential burnout and the demanding nature of his position as general manager, Myers decided it was time to go.

“The bottom line is this job, the one I’m in, I would say this for any professional general manager or coach, requires complete engagement, complete effort, 100%,” Myers said. “If you can’t do it, then you shouldn’t do it. So that’s the answer to the question of why. I can’t do that to our players, I can’t do that to Joe, Peter, really I can’t do it to myself and that’s the question I’ve been wrestling with.” He stated.

Myers had a prosperous career as a sports agent before signing with the Warriors, representing well-known NBA players including Brandon Roy, Tyreke Evans, and Kendrick Perkins.

In 2011 he joined the Warriors organization as an assistant general manager and rapidly became well-known.Under Myers’ direction, the Warriors put together a roster that was capable of winning a championship, selecting Harrison Barnes, Festus Ezeli, and Draymond Green in the draught, all of whom were essential to the club’s 2015 NBA championship triumph.

After the NBA Finals in 2016, Myers masterminded the acquisition of Kevin Durant, building a fearsome team with Green, Klay Thompson, and Stephen Curry. The squad later went on to win NBA titles in 2017 and 2018, as well as make it to the NBA Finals in 2019.

The Warriors faced difficulties in the following seasons, but Myers was still able to put together a squad that won the title in 2022. Myers built four championship-winning teams during his 11-year career as general manager and guided the club to the NBA Finals six times. His departure signals the end of a period in which the Warriors club had tremendous success.
