Today CSN Bay Area announced that Rosalyn Gold-Onwude (Twitter avatar shown above) will replace Ric Bucher as the Warriors sideline analyst next season.
“We want to thank Ric for his strong contributions over the past two seasons,” stated David Koppett, Senior Director of Live Events, Comcast SportsNet Bay Area and Comcast SportsNet California.
Gold-Onwude played basketball at Stanford and has served as a color commentator on Santa Cruz Warriors broadcasts, among many other outlets.
Bucher’s plate was getting pretty full, as he’s an NBA columnist for Bleacher Report and hosts a radio show on 95.7 The Game that starts at 6 am (Bucher and Townsend hosted KGMZ’s afternoon drive time show last season). No word on whether Bucher’s other responsibilities or Gold-Onwude’s dancing ability played into CSN’s decision.
