OPEN THREAD: Warriors Elect Not To Renew Chris Mullin's Contract; Promote Larry Riley To GM

The Warriors finally make the move that has been rumored for a long time now. Mullin won't be fired, his contract just won't be renewed. In to take his place is Nellie's guy (puppet?), Larry Riley.

What was originally reported by MT2 has been made official:

The Golden State Warriors announced today that the club has elected not to renew the contract of Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations Chris Mullin. In a related move, the team has named Larry Riley as the club’s new General Manager...

Riley has accumulated 20-plus years of NBA experience in various capacities prior to being named GM of the Warriors, including a six-year stint as Director of Player Personnel for the expansion Vancouver Grizzlies from 1994-95 to 1999-00. The Indiana native also spent six seasons as an assistant coach/scout with the Milwaukee Bucks (1988-89 to 1993-94) and six years with the Dallas Mavericks in the same capacity (2000-01 to 2005-06).
