Accepting a front office role means that Pachulia is officially done with his playing days after a 16-year career. The 6-foot-11 center played for six NBA teams, and spent the 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons with the Warriors, averaging 5.7 points and 5.3 rebounds per game while winning a pair of titles.
Golden State also made a few other moves. Kirk Lacob (son of team co-chairman Joe Lacob), who has been with the team for eight years, was promoted to executive vice president of basketball operations. His brother Kent, who was the general manager of the Santa Cruz Warriors last year, was named director of team development.
