Klay Thompson and the Golden State Warriors reportedly plan to reach an agreement on a five-year, $190 million contract.

According to a report from NBA insider Shams Charania of the Athletic and Stadium, the Warriors sent a front office contingent to meet with Klay in Los Angeles.

The two sides were always expected to come to an agreement, but there was a possibility he would sign elsewhere.

Here's the news from Shams.

Earlier this week, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski revealed the Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers planned to make a go at Thompson if the Warriors failed to offer him a max contract.

Thompson suffered a torn ACL during the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors. Despite the injury, the Warriors reportedly feel comfortable about him making a full recovery.

Golden State reportedly plans to have Klay back in the lineup in February or March - which would put him on the 8-9 month timeline for a return from ACL surgery.

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.

Woj revealed KD and Kawhi Leonard could team up with the Clippers or New York Knicks.

Stay tuned.
