With the Warriors coming off successive playoff appearances for the first time since 1992, there was little doubt someone of influence and authority would be rewarded.
That someone is general manager Bob Myers, who has agreed to a three-year contract extension.
Myers confirmed the news via text message Thursday night.
Myers, 39, was entering the final season of the original three-year pact signed in the spring of 2012. The GM's new deal, first reported by Bay Area News Group columnist Tim Kawakami, runs through the 2017-18 season.
Warriors CEO Joe Lacob selected Myers to be the chief personnel executive more than three years ago, hiring him away from the powerful Wasserman Media Group, where he worked as an agent under veteran power broker Arn Tellem.
After one season as assistant GM, Myers was promoted to his current post. The Monte Vista High (Danville) product has been successful in the draft, has made smart trades and last summer took the calculated risk of signing free agent forward Andre Iguodala.
Though Lacob cited both Myers and former coach Mark Jackson as essential to the team's climb from the bottom rungs of the NBA, the CEO's allegiance to Myers was evident when Jackson was dismissed in May, after a 51-win season.
