Woj: Thompson would lean toward Clippers if he leaves Warriors

May JohnsonMay 09, 2019

One player who had not been discussed before was five-time All-Star, three-time champion guard Klay Thompson.

"But I think the Warriors are bracing for possibly seismic change within that organization", Wojnarowski said, as quoted on the Bleacher Report. Klay should find himself the recipient of a max deal, so the Warriors are looking at paying an extremely heavy luxury tax fee in order to keep both players around.

Here's a look into which free agents are worth targeting for the Chicago Bulls among current Golden State Warriors rostered players come the 2019 National Basketball Association off-season. If Golden State can't retain Durant this offseason, the Warriors odds to win the title next season will certainly see a drop.

The New York Knicks have been a running joke for much of the last two decades. If Kevin Durant leaves this team, it opens the league up to a lot of teams who think they'll be able to start competing for championships again.

Mississippi River causing major flooding across the Midwest
FEMA says the Mississippi River is expected to crest Wednesday at more than 22 feet, approaching an all-time record set in 1993. Sandbagging begins Thursday on the Peoria riverfront as the Illinois River pushes past flood stage.

What the Warriors don't yet know: Will the party be a celebration or mourning of glory days? With the cap space to afford another star player and the chance to revive the biggest franchise in the biggest media market, Durant could finally have the chance to prove the doubters wrong and lead his own team to a title.

Thompson will be one of several top free agents potentially available this summer, alongside the likes of Kevin Durant and Kawhi Leonard. However, he may explore his options if the Warriors do not offer him a max contract, according to ESPN.

Similarly, Irving's best deal will also come from Boston Celtics when he enters free agency in the summer, but his backtracking from his verbal commitment to re-sign with them has seen many predicting he will join Durant in NY.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski notes that the Warriors are surely prepared to give Thompson the max contract (five-years, $190 million) he desires on July 1. "Watch not for the Lakers, then, but the Clippers".
