In the midst of their first championship summer since 1975, the Warriors quietly extended one of the most sought after executives in the league, extending assistant general manager Travis Schlenk to a three-year contract extension.

Schlenk joined the Warriors in 2004 and worked as a video scout and assistant coach before moving into the front office.

“He is one of those guys who flies under the radar,” executive board member and Hall of Fame player Jerry West said of Schlenk in 2013. “He’s not a self-promoter, as some people are in this league. I’ll certainly go to bat for him.”

Before hoisting the Larry O’Brien trophy with Golden State, Schlenk worked with Chuck Daly as an intern with the Orlando Magic. Following Orlando, he signed on as a video coordinator with the Miami Heat working alongside the likes of Pat Riley, Stan Van Gundy and Erik Spoelstra.

“He’s arguably the hardest-working person in the organization,” general manager Bob Myers said. “He’s not afraid to travel. He’s up late. He’s on prop planes going to the middle of nowhere.”

This particular front office has valued continuity tremendously, and Schlenk’s continued tenure will guarantee that remains following the most successful season in franchise history. An integral part of their collective front office approach, Schlenk will continue working rigorously for at least three more seasons.
