Just days after his top assistant Pete D’Alessandro left the organization, the Golden State Warriors fired Vice President of Basketball Operations and Vice President of Player Relations Neil Olshey on Monday following an internal investigation into workplace allegations. Olshey’s responsibilities have been taken over by Ime Udoka, the team’s Director of Team Employee Relations.
Shortly after the announcement was made, Olshey confirmed his departure via Twitter.
