    Klay Thompson discussing Extension w/ Warriors

    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2...m-deal-with-sg

    Pretty good deal for the Warriors if the numbers are right. 5 years 121 million.

    Klay needs more then that... Also the Splash Brothers, I would hope play their entire careers together.

    I never thought he would leave GS/Curry, so they need to pay him closer too 185mil.

If Beas can be what he was when he was a rookie (he won't hell be better) then the heat are coming away with another steal.

    Is the contract maybe because of the cap hit? I know a lot of people were saying that the contract offers aren't going to be as ballooned as they were in the season.

    Edit: NVM, they can pay him what he want's as their resigning him.. Jesus that's a bargain contract these days if those numbers stick ... He's making about 100m less than Harden's deal.

    He's taking a discount to keep the team together. And considering if push came to shove everyone pretty much agrees he'd be the one to go, I think it's probably the right choice, assuming the Warriors don't turn around and trade him anyway.

    I changed the title. he hasn't signed anything yet and thats what the title implied.if he took a paycut it would a huge deal because it means that they can keep the core 4 guys.

    Amen. That man should be a lifelong Warrior not only because he wants to be, but because he deserves it. Heís done everything asked of him and has maximized his potential as a player. He needs to take a discount and I hope he understands that

    Heís not greedy? Thompson grew up with money. And he has a different set of core values than other guys. Hence Stephs willingnous to accept that massive discount to stay in the bay even though he couldíve gotten more from the Warriors if he put the screws in or threatened to leave.

    His father also has made good investments for himself in his career, and I donít think a salary is the only way to make money in the Bay Area. So many business opportunities to negotiate with given the ownerships connections to Silicon Valley and big business.

    Klay making 80m from Anta. I'm sure he can take a discount.

    At this point its not about money, he has plenty of money that will last him a lifetime. It's really about either him having a better opportunity to win and taking a discount with the warriors or going somewhere else for more money but more importantly being "the guy" and crafting your own legacy. I'd probably stay put if I were him too.

    All I will say on this is that he needs to get a NTC or he is an idiot...

    Additionally, he needs to get as many opt outs as possible as you never know what can happen with teams 6 years from now... that is a LONG commitment

    Leaving 50 million on the table? Wtf. I wonder if they're going to try to get this done before the start of next FA to try and pressure KD into taking less again

    I am always curious how much extra money a player gets in endorsements and other career opportunities being on a championship team. Like how much money is he REALLY losing by staying on a dynasty and guaranteeing himself a Hall of Fame career?
