Lakers haven't called Warriors about GM Bob Myers, owner Joe Lacob says originally appeared on nbcsportsbayarea.com

The trendy rumor floating around NBA circles is that Warriors general manager Bob Myers could leave the back-to-back champs to join the Los Angeles Lakers' front office.

But Myers himself laughed at the thought when NBC Sports Bay Area's Monte Poole asked him about it Friday. Then, on Saturday, Warriors CEO Joe Lacob poured even more cold water on the idea.

"No one [from the Lakers] has called me. I can say that," Lacob told NBC Sports Bay Area's Greg Papa on "Warriors Playoff Central" before Game 1 of the first-round series against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Lacob spoke about what Myers means to him, and also didn't rule out something unexpected happening.

"We'll have to wait and see if something like that did occur," Lacob said. "He's a great part of our family here, and I feel very close to him. I consider him like a son, almost. I would be surprised by that, I guess. ... We'll see.

"I know there's been a lot of media speculation. Things happen, so you have to be prepared for it."

Myers went to UCLA and was based out of Los Angeles when he was an agent, so the connection to LA is there. But Myers also grew up a Warriors fan, so leaving would be tough for him.

Plus, the Warriors are a well-oiled machine right now. The Lakers are a car wreck, after they missed the playoffs for the sixth consecutive season and team president Magic Johnson surprisingly quit earlier this week.
