The Golden State Warriors announced Thursday
that the team will retain general manager and executive vice president of
basketball operations Larry Riley.

Riley, 66, has been the general manager of the team since May 11, 2009. He
came to the organization in 2006 as an assistant coach and was named assistant
general manager in November of 2008.

His team posted a record of just 26-56 in his first season as general manager,
but the team improved by 10 games this past season to go 36-46 and finish 12th
overall in the Western Conference.

"I think Larry has done a great job and I've been very pleased with his
performance," said Warriors owner Joe Lacob. "He's had a vision since he took
the job less than two years ago and he has certainly helped move this team in
an extremely positive direction in terms of our culture, cap management and
roster additions."

Also on Thursday, the team announced that it has named Bob Myers as assistant
general manager and vice president of basketball operations.

Myers, 36, joins the Warriors after spending the previous five years with
Wasserman Media Group in Los Angeles. He represented close to 20 NBA players
at Wasserman Media Group in his position as managing executive.

Golden State has been one of the worst run franchises for the better part of 2 decades (to be semi-fair though they do have a new owner now). Despite this they are still end rumours of leadership by announcing their GM will stay.

How does this relate to the Raptors? Because they just became the team with the worst ownership in the league - that includes Heisley. Thank you Teachers and bean counters.
