Warriors general manager Bob Myers has agreed to a three-year extension with the team that will keep him under contract through the 2017-2018 season, an NBA source confirmed to this newspaper Thursday night.
Myers, whose deal was due to expire at the end of the coming season, has been the team's G.M. since April 2012 and recently helped steer the way through the tumultuous dismissal of coach Mark Jackson after a 51-win season and second consecutive trip to the playoffs.
Myers, 39, also teamed with co-owner Joe Lacob in the search that resulted in the hiring of Steve Kerr, who signed a five-year deal through the 2018-2019 season.
This deal, agreed to more than a few weeks ago, is added on to his existing deal, bringing Myers and the Warriors' commitment to a total of four more seasons.
With Myers and Kerr locked up long-term, and the team eyeing a move to a new San Francisco arena by 2018, the Warriors also are believed to be discussing an extension with executive board member Jerry West, whose contract is due to expire next summer.
There were reports of some tension within the front-office structure as the Warriors weighed the possibility of a trade for then-Minnesota star Kevin Love, who since has been traded to Cleveland.
But throughout the process, Warriors sources insisted that Lacob set up his hierarchy precisely to draw out strong opinions, with Myers and Lacob serving as the final arbiters, as they did when the team decided not to include Klay Thompson in any general offer to Minnesota for Love.
Myers had a long career as a sports agent before joining the Warriors as an assistant general manager in April 2011, before he was promoted a year later to the G.M. spot.
