Myers has strong relationships with all the established members of the Warriors, including Lacob and coach Steve Kerr, along with players Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, according to Wojnarowski. Myers joined the organization in 2011 and has handled the general manager’s duties since 2012.

Golden State is already facing a future payroll that could reach $500MM, which may lead to some difficult personnel decisions. A new contract for Myers is also expected to come at a high price.

The Warriors have engaged in discussions about an extension for Kerr as well, Wojnarowski adds. Kerr has two years remaining on his current contract, so there’s less urgency to get a deal finalized.
