Ohemaa Nyanin: The American-Ghanaian pushing boundaries in the Women’s NBA


The NBA women’s team Golden State named American-Ghanaian Ohemaa Nyanin as the team’s first general manager on Monday.

Nyanin was presented at a press conference on Monday morning, alongside Warriors owner Joe Lacob.

She will be in charge of all basketball operations, including roster building, team building and player development.

The Golden State went into service this year and will be on the market starting in the 2025 season.

Prior to her appointment as Golden State’s general manager, Nyanin spent more than five years with the New York Liberty in various roles, most recently serving as the team’s assistant general manager.

As assistant general manager, Nyanin served as the primary liaison between the basketball team and the operations teams, assisting with free agency, trades, salary cap management and roster expansion.

Her previous roles include director of basketball operations (2020-2022) and manager of basketball operations (2019-2020).

During her time in New York, the Liberty made three WNBA playoff appearances, including a trip to the 2023 WNBA Finals as the No. 2 overall seed.
