Warriors adding Chuck Hayes to their front office


In what has been an active summer for the Golden State Warriors, it would appear that Mike Dunleavy isn’t done making moves. This time, though, Golden State is adding fresh talent to their front office. According to a July 28 report by HoopsHype’s Michael Scotto, the Warriors are adding Chuck Hayes to their front office staff.

During his playing days, Hayes represented the Houston Rockets, Sacramento Kings, and Toronto Raptors, primarily operating as a defensive specialist at both the power forward and center positions. Since his retirement, Hayes has worked his way up from a pro player personnel scout and has steadily worked his way up the ranks. According to the Houston Chronicle, Hayes’ new role with the Warriors will be as their director of basketball operations.

“He said in a text message on Saturday that his new role with the Warriors will encompass some scouting at the professional and college levels but also “enhance my responsibilities with free agency and some trade strategy,”” Jonathan Feigen of the Chronicle reported.

Golden State already boasted an impressive front office full of elite talent and bright basketball minds. However, it’s clear that Mike Dunleavy and Joe Lacob are continuing to build toward another sustained period of success as their all-conquering core begins to enter the final phase of their career.

Hayes will bring a keen eye for talent and a wealth of experience to his new role, which will only serve to make the Warriors more of a complete franchise.
