Warriors GM Bob Myers ‘completely focused on this season’ with contract expiring

SAN FRANCISCO — Warriors general manager and president of basketball operations Bob Myers says he isn’t ready to think beyond this season.

But with his contract set to expire this summer, more questions are bubbling to the surface about his future with the organization for whom he helped build four championship-winning teams.

Still, Myers, 47, has insisted he’s not worrying about that just yet.

“I’m completely focused on this season,” Myers told the Bay Area News Group in an interview Tuesday after practice.

The Athletic reported Wednesday that talks of Myers’ extension “remain flat” leaving some within the organization to believe Myers’ days with the franchise are numbered.

One of the reported topics hindering those discussions is money. Myers, a two-time NBA Executive of the Year, believes he should be among the highest-paid front office executives in the league. According to The Athletic, he is outside the top five but within the top 10.

The potential departure of Myers would have a ripple effect on the franchise. Myers has close relationships with coach Steve Kerr as well as the dynastic nucleus of Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson. Green and Thompson have wondered about their own future with the team that drafted them a decade ago.

Myers said he still finds joy walking into Chase Center for practices, meetings and games.
