The Warriors basketball operations department is going to have a new (old?) face this season. 

On Thursday, the Warriors announced they are welcoming back Zaza Pachulia as a consultant. The Warriors also announced they promoted Mike Dunleavy Jr. from pro scout to assistant general manager.

Dunleavy Jr. played for 15 seasons in the NBA, including four-plus seasons with the Warriors from 2002-2007. He played his college ball at Duke. Dunleavy joined the Warriors basketball operations department as a pro scout prior to the beginning of last season.

Pachulia was a member of both the 2017 and 2018 NBA title-winning teams. He will be consulting on both the business side and basketball side.
