The basketball team confirmed Hunter's departure, and subsequent landing at Apple, to the Silicon Valley Business Journal.

In a statement to the publication, the Warriors said Hunter will leave the team on Friday and join … [Read more...] about Apple hires events director from Golden State Warriors
