NBA.com staff report
Not many thought Klay Thompson would leave the Warriors, and that appears to be the case. Klay Thompson has agreed to sign a five-year, $190 million contract to remain in Golden State, per multiple reports.
And, yes, Klay Thompson is getting the five-year, $190 max from Golden State, sources reiterate. A done deal even before today— Marc Stein (@TheSteinLine) July 1, 2019
Source: It's a full five-year max for Klay Thompson, not a 4+1. No player option on the fifth year. No 'no trade' clause. Just like the Steph Curry contract a couple summers ago.— Anthony Slater (@anthonyVslater) July 1, 2019
Thompson sustained a torn ACL in his left knee during Game 6 of The Finals and is in the midst of a lengthy recovery process.
Thompson has had seven straight seasons with at least 200 3-pointers, tied with Stephen Curry for the most in NBA history. He has eight straight seasons of shooting at least 40 percent from beyond the arc, which is the league’s second-longest active streak in the NBA behind Curry. His 1,798 career 3s are 16th all time. Thompson, the 11th overall pick in the 2011 Draft, is a five-time All-Star and two-time third-team All-NBA player averaging 19.5 points and 42 percent 3-point shooting in his career.
