Will Bob Myers join the broadcast side of sports for his next move?
The 48-year-old is stepping down from his post as Warriors president of basketball operations/general manager, as his contract expires on June 30. While owner Joe Lacob wants him to take part in the team’s draft on June 22, Myers is pretty much out the door at this point.
According to a report by Front Office Sports’ Michael McCarthy, ESPN and Myers are in “very early" talks about an NBA broadcast position.
A foray into the media world seems like a natural step for Myers, who hosted a podcast for ESPN this past year called “Lead By Example.” Throughout his tenure with the Warriors, Myers has been renowned as one of the most media-savvy execs the Bay Area has ever seen. After his basketball career at UCLA, Myers was a part of the Bruins basketball radio network before jumping into his career as an agent and the Warriors front office.
“I've never stopped,” Myers said earlier this week. “I've never really stopped going. I went right from an agent to this. Went to law school at night after college. My whole life has been like -- maybe it will be good for me to sit still. I don't know how good I'll be at it but I've actually never done it, and maybe figure some things out. And I don't know what's coming.”
