According to any article posted by Marcus Thompson II, Larry Riley has all but taken over complete control of the Generial Manager duties for the Warriors. Here's a link to the article.
Concern also exists over whether Riley has the necessary credentials. Riley has experience in the front office, working as director of player personnel for the Vancouver Grizzlies from 1994-2000 (which is more front-office experience than Mullin had when he assumed his current post in 2004). Riley also has more than a decade experience as an assistant coach and scout in the NBA....
....Riley apparently has done enough to earn the trust of Rowell. And according to one of the players, "everybody knows he's going to be the GM. ... I know everybody likes him."
Perhaps they'd better, considering Riley's running the show.
It sound like Cohan still doesn't have the balls to just out right fire Mully. Rather, he'll let Riley run the draft and offseason personel moves until Mullin's contract offically runs out on July 1st. In my opinion this is just another nail in the coffin for the We Believe Movement. Welcome to another offseason of We Suck (that unless we get a lucky ping pong ball bounce on May 19th).
