From the day that Golden State brought in Bob Myers, he was the general manager apparent. He was going to work with existing GM Larry Riley for a while, but it was going to be his job.

Well, now it is, the warriors made it official. Here is the tweet from Ken Berger at CBSSports.com.

Warriors announce they’ve promoted asst. GM Bob Myers to GM. Larry Riley remains with team as director of scouting.

Golden State’s new owners have been aggressive in trying to change the fortunes of a franchise that has been to the playoffs once in 17 years. Myers is the guy executing that. Despite the best efforts of his team tanking, the Warriors will not have a first round pick this draft.

The Warriors have rolled the dice on health for next season — Stephen Curry and Andrew Bogut both had ankle surgery this week. If next fall both are back healthy and close to their games of a few years back this becomes a potential playoff team with some good pieces in the West. If they don’t bounce back… well, meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

    jesus you guys are relentless when it comes to posting wrong info aboyt the warriors. first of all for the last time…. the warriors 1st pick is only given up if they are outside the top 7 AFTER the lottery. so they keep the pick if they wind up with a top 7 after the lottery. also the warriors acquired san Antonio’s 1st round pick in the stephen jackson trade so even IF they end up losing their first pick after the lottery they will still habe a first round puck via san antonio. how do you guys survive when yiu consistently post information that is dead wrong???? amazing

    Larry Riley was a clown. He screwed the Warriors with some terrible draft picks over the years. He also screwed us with bad trades on top of worst trades. What a puppet.
