Klay Thompson and Warriors unable to move forward with extension deal

According to a journalist, the winger and the Golden State Warriors are not very close to reaching an agreement to renew the player’s contract, who is in the last year of his contract with the franchise.

The winger Klay Thompson and the Golden State Warriors are still far from being able to close a renewal agreement, at least that’s what the journalist reported Adrian Wojnarowskifrom “ESPN”, during his participation in the program ‘NBA Countdown’which took place this past Sunday, the 15th.

According to the journalist, conversations between the two parties, which began last month, are cold and the player could reach the next free agency without a contract with the franchise. “I was told that there has been absolutely no progress on a Klay Thompson extension with Golden State. Both are at odds over deadline and money and there is a real possibility that Klay Thompson will hit free agency without a deal.”said Woj.

At 33 years old, Klay is entering the fifth and final year of a contract worth US$189.9 million, signed in July 2019. In the current season, he receives US$43.2 million. Last Wednesday, 11th, the four-time champion of NBA spoke to Anthony Slaterfrom “The Athletic”, about not wanting to play for any team other than the Warriors. “I wouldn’t go anywhere. Play for just one franchise, man? This is so rare. In any sport. Football, baseball, basketball. For just one team, it’s insane. It’s something legendary. Look at what Udonis Haslem did (he played 20 seasons, just for the Miami Heat). He’s revered in Miami.”shot.
