Thompson: Never a doubt about re-signing with Warriors
- The Golden State Warriors reportedly offered Klay Thompson a five-year max deal and the shooting guard said staying was "never a doubt".
Klay Thompson said there was "never a doubt" he would remain with the Golden State Warriors.
According to multiple reports, Golden State sharpshooter and impending free agent Thompson agreed to a five-year, $190million contract with the team.
The five-time All-Star appeared to confirm fresh terms had been settled with a post on Instagram.
Thompson uploaded an expletive-laden clip from the film 'The Wolf of Wall Street' and added the caption: "There was never a doubt. #warrior4life"
Thompson finished the season averaging 21.5 points and 3.8 rebounds in 78 games. He has been a consistent offensive presence for the Warriors, knocking down 41.9 per cent of his three-point attempts over his eight-year career.
His 2018-19 season came to an awful end when he suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in Game 6 of the NBA Finals, which ended in defeat to the Toronto Raptors.
Thompson is expected to miss the majority of the 2019-20 season.
