Report: Joe Lacob expected to seek more prominent roles for son, Kirk and Mike Dunleavy Jr.

A new era is underway for the Golden State Warriors. On Tuesday, the longtime General Manager and President of Basketball Operations, Bob Myers, stepped down from his role with the Warriors.

With the Warriors now in search of a new general manager and lead decision-maker in the front office, internal names are already beginning to surface for owner Joe Lacob.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Lacob is expected to seek more prominent roles for his son, Kirk and Mike Dunleavy Jr. Kirk Lacob currently serves as an executive vice president of basketball operations with the team while Dunleavy Jr. is the Warriors’ current VP of basketball operations.

Dunleavy Jr. reportedly represented the Warriors at the NBA GM meetings in Chicago in early May. After playing in the league until 2017, Dunleavy Jr. was hired by the Warriors’ front office as a scout in 2018. Dunleavy Jr. has continued to rise through Golden State’s front office, being promoted to assistant general manager and vice president of basketball operations. 

Lacob, the son of Warriors owner, Joe, has been with the organization since 2010. Lacob has been in Golden State’s assistant general manager role along with vice president of GSW sports ventures. Lacob has also worked closely with Golden State’s G League affiliate, the Santa Cruz Warriors. 

With a franchise-legend in Myers stepping down, whoever takes over the reigns in Golden State’s front office with have large shoes to fill before a pivotal offseason gets underway in the Bay Area.
