All-Star guard Klay Thompson is staying put with the Golden State Warriors.
Thompson had always wanted to stay with Golden State, saying last year: Ive said it many times before: I would like to be a Warrior for life.
Warriors general manager Bob Myers said last week he planned to sit down with Thompson before the start of free agency Sunday, when Golden State saw Kevin Durant depart for the Brooklyn Nets.
Being part of the Warriors dynasty – five straight NBA Finals berths and three championships in four years from 2015-18 – appeals to Thompson.
Thompson scored a career-high 60 points on Dec. 5, 2016, for the highest-scoring performance by a Golden State player in more than 42 years.
