Report: Warriors GM Bob Myers was Lakers' No. 1 target

Report: Warriors GM Bob Myers was Lakers' No. 1 target

On Tuesday morning, the Lakers made sweeping changes to their front office.

Magic Johnson is now the president of basketball operations and both general manager Mitch Kupchak and executive VP of basketball operations Jim Buss were fired.

Los Angeles -- looking to hire a new GM -- originally targeted Warriors GM Bob Myers, according to The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski.

But as Wojnarowski reports: "After Myers signed a recent contract extension, it became clear to Lakers brass that it would be unable to lure Myers."

In September, the Warriors promoted Myers from general manager to president of basketball operations/general manager.

Myers was named the NBA Executive of the Year following the 2014-15 season.
