The trade deadline is a little over a week away, and it could possibly have implications on the free agent class on 2019.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Klay Thompson might find himself on the outside looking in on Golden State’s cap plans, and could really consider joining the team that his dad made a name for himself. Here was Wojnarowski today:
“The best-case scenario for the Lakers is that they add Anthony Davis and then Golden State doesn’t offer Klay Thompson a max contract. They try to get Klay to take a little bit less than the max. And if that happens, I’m told Klay’s attention will be on the Lakers if they have Anthony Davis.”
It was made very was clear that Golden State wants to retain Klay Thompson but still have to find a way to take care of Draymond Green and Kevin Durant in free agency. It will be interesting to see if the Warriors are going to offer less money to Klay in order to keep the core in tact.
