The Golden State Warriors have reportedly decided on a contract offer for star guard Klay Thompson.
According to a report from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Warriors plan to offer Thompson a max contract of $190 million over five years.
This was the plan all along. Thompson is expected to sign the deal to remain a member of the Warriors.
"Golden State is planning to offer All-Star Klay Thompson a 5-year, $190M maximum contract when free agency opens Sunday at 6 PM ET --- which is expected to accelerate process of GM Bob Myers and Thompson’s agent, Greg Lawrence, quickly reaching formal agreement," Woj reported on Friday afternoon.
Thompson suffered a torn ACL during the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors. Despite the injury, Golden State was expected to give the Splash Brother a max deal. It looks like everything is going according to plan for the team.
The Los Angeles Clippers and Lakers were reportedly ready to swoop in if Golden State failed to offer him the max.
The Warriors are still awaiting Kevin Durant's free agency decision. ESPN reported Golden State is expected to offer Durant a max contract, though it's unclear where he plans to sign.
