The Golden State Warriors are going to have to revert back to their original big-three of Steph Curry, Draymond Green, and Klay Thompson now that Kevin Durant has signed up to play with Kyrie Irving in Brooklyn.
To shore things up on the Warriors’ end, the Dubs had to lock up Klay Thompson for the foreseeable future in order to remain contenders. The team announced on Monday that they have agreed to a 5-year, $190 million max contract for Thompson. Klay is currently rehabbing a torn ACL but many expect him to be ready for a late-season push and a postseason appearance. In the meantime, the Warriors signed breakout star D’Angelo Russell to a 4-year max contract in hopes that he will provide them with enough to compete while Klay nurses that knee.
