Thompson is looking for a max contract offer, but Golden State has yet to table an undeniable offer for the guard.
Thompson is in his 8th season in the NBA, all with the Warriors. Even while playing with the high scoring likes of Steph Curry and Kevin Durant, Thompson has proven his scoring ability, managing to 19.4 points a game over his career. Thompson has averaged over 20 points in 5 of his 8 seasons, and will be one of the most desired free agents of his class.
The LA Lakers are looking to add star power this summer, and Klay Thompson would represent a proven player who is going to score. LA has been rumored to be interested in countless All Stars as Magic Johnson tries to surround LeBron with talent that can win now.
Thompson has played with Steph Curry his whole career, but has the potential to be a different, possibly better, player without Curry. Thompson on the Lakers could represent a very unique team. With a refreshed role on a new team, Thompson has the ability to be one of the best scorers in the league.
This summer promises to be an interesting one for the Golden State Warriors. Not only will they have to worry about the future of Klay Thompson, but the organization will also have to tend to the contract situation of star forward Kevin Durant. Durant will also have the option to opt out this summer, allowing him to listen to other contract offers from other teams. Make sure to stay posted on the contract situations in Golden State. This Warriors have the potential to look like a much different team at the start of the 2019-20 season.
