Warriors, Thompson talking team-friendly extension

Exclusive Warriors Klay Thompson talk contract extension — a team-friendly deal that would keep him off the market

Klay Thompson's professed dedication to the Warriors and the Bay Area isn't just words.

If the Warriors waited for him to hit the open market after next season, the number would skyrocket.

Throughout the season, Klay Thompson has been asked about a contract extension with the Golden State Warriors, and although he hasn't talked a lot about it he has said the same thing every time, that he wants to continue to be a Warrior. Thompson points out that if the two sides work out a deal now, that it would decrease the maximum the sharpshooter could make while saving the Warriors a ton in luxury tax penalties. He is reportedly considering a four-year, $92 million extension, which would result in him leaving roughly $47 million on the table and saving the Warriors significant money.

If Thompson was to become an unrestricted free agent, he would be eligible to earn over $80 million more than if he were to sign an extension now.

Klay has been clear about his desire to stay put, telling Bleacher Report recently that "it would be hard to envision going anywhere else".

Sources indicate Thompson's five-year total could be as low as $111 million.

Durant took a $10m pay-cut past year, which enabled the Warriors to keep hold of Andre Iguodala's and Shaun Livingston's Bird Rights meaning it was easier to re-sign them both. They won 58 games this season even while dealing with a plethora of injuries and once again made the Western Conference Finals, which are set to kick off this coming week.
