The Golden State Warriors saw their magical run come to an end on Thursday night as Kawhi Leonard and the Toronto Raptors won every game at Oracle Arena en route to their first title.
After the loss, the Warriors were left licking their wounds.
Just days after Kevin Durant suffered a ruptured Achilles, Klay Thompson tore his ACL in Game 6 against the Raptors on a hard foul by Danny Green.
Both are likely to miss significant time next season – though Thompson has a chance to return in February or March.
Despite suffering devastating injuries, both are expected to receive max contract offers from the Warriors.
On Friday afternoon, Warriors general manager Bob Myers spoke with Golden State insider Marcus Thompson about their contracts:
“Those guys are highly important to us and deserve of being rewarded in the right manner. … Try to keep those guys within these walls as best you can,” Myers said to Thompson.

Earlier today, Klay Thompson’s father, Mychal, revealed Klay plans to re-sign with Golden State.
Durant has several options on the table. He is reportedly set to receive offers from the New York Knicks and Los Angeles Clippers, among others.
Stay tuned for the latest on their decisions.
