Mike Dunleavy Jr., a forward for Golden State during a 15-year NBA career, was promoted to general manager of the Warriors on Friday, replacing the departing Bob Myers.

The 42-year-old son of a long-time NBA player and coach served as vice president of basketball operations for the past two years after two seasons as assistant general manager of the Warriors.

Myers announced last month he was stepping down on 30 June after being the architect of a Warriors squad that won four NBA titles from 2015-2022 and twice winning the NBA Executive of the Year award.

“We think Mike is the perfect fit to lead our basketball operations department,” Warriors co-executive chairman Joe Lacob said. “He has a wealth of basketball knowledge, stemming from his family upbringing, a 15-year NBA playing career, and five seasons serving under Bob Myers in our front office.

“He’s young and energetic, has established numerous relationships around the league, and communicates well with players and coaches — all important traits in this business. Mike’s ready for this challenge and responsibility.”

Dunleavy Jr. was selected with the third overall pick in the 2002 NBA Draft by Golden State and played five seasons with the Warriors before later joining Indiana, Milwaukee, Chicago, and Cleveland, and closing his career with Atlanta in 2017 having averaged 11.2 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.2 assists a game.

He was hired by the Warriors in 2018 as a pro scout.
