Bob Myers      

General Manager of the Golden State Warriors

Bob Myers begins his 11th season as general manager of the Golden State Warriors and seventh with the additional title of President of Basketball Operations. In this role, he reports directly to Co-Executive Chairman & CEO Joe Lacob and oversees the entire basketball operations department on a day-to-day basis. Myers was originally named GM on April 24, 2012.

Myers, 47, has assembled a roster that won four NBA titles (2015, 2017, 2018, 2022) in eight seasons and made five consecutive appearances in the NBA Finals (2015-2019). The Warriors (2014-19) tied the Celtics (1980-85) for the most regular season wins (373) in NBA history over a six-season span, including an NBA-record 73 wins in 2015-16. 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 Executive of the Year honors multiple times and one of only five in league history to earn the honor twice in a span of three seasons.

During his tenure as general manager the Warriors have enjoyed their most successful stretch in franchise history, posting a .665 regular- season winning percentage (527-266), which is 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, set in the NBA’s first six-seasons in existence from 1946-47 through 1951-52. The franchise had qualified for the playoffs just once in the previous 18 years.

Throughout Myers’ tenure, the Warriors have retained many of their top talents, signing starters Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson to contract extensions. Myers acquired 2015 NBA Finals MVP Andre Iguodala via trade in 2013 and signed Kevin Durant, the 2017 and 2018 NBA Finals MVP.

Besides acquiring key players, one of Myers’ most important decisions was the signing of current Head Coach Steve Kerr on May 19, 2014. Kerr was named the NBA’s Coach of Year in 2014-15 and along with his coaching staff, twice coached the Western Conference All-Stars (2015, 2017).

Myers originally joined the Warriors on April 14, 2011, as assistant general manager/vice president of basketball operations, after enjoying a highly successful 14-year stint as a representative to numerous NBA players. During his first year with the Warriors organization, he worked closely under the tutelage of then-General Manager Larry Riley on all Basketball Operations matters, including contract negotiations, talent evaluation, roster management, scouting and CBA compliance.

Before joining the Warriors, Myers spent the previous five years at Wasserman Media Group (WMG) in Los Angeles. As managing executive at WMG, which is one of the largest global sports and entertainment companies in the world, Myers represented a client list of nearly 20 NBA players in their team and endorsement contracts.

Prior to joining Wasserman, Myers served as vice president of SFX Sports, where he represented numerous NBA players. Myers began his career in the sports representation business in 1997 as an intern at Los Angeles-based Tellem and Associates – under the tutelage of long-time sports agent Arn Tellem – which became SFX Sports in 2000. During his 14 years in the business, Myers negotiated over $575 million in contracts.

With a well-earned reputation as one of the top player agents in the NBA, Myers was a recipient of the prestigious “40 under 40” Award in 2011, presented annually by the SportsBusiness Journal to the 40 most influential sports executives under the age of 40.

A Bay Area native, Myers attended Monte Vista High School in Danville, earning two varsity letters with the basketball team and All-League First Team and All-Metro Third Team honors in his senior year. On October 10, 2019, Myers was inducted as a member of its first class Athletic Hall of Fame for 2019. Myers graduated from UCLA in 1998 with a degree in business/economics. Beginning his collegiate career as a walk-on, Myers earned an athletic scholarship in his sophomore season in 1994-95, the same season the Bruins would capture the 1995 NCAA Championship. Two years later, in Myers’ senior season, the Bruins advanced to the 1997 Elite Eight.

A member of the State Bar of California, Myers earned his Juris Doctorate from Loyola Law School in 2002.

He and his wife, Kristen, have three daughters, Kayla, Annabelle and Rosie.
