Warriors G Klay Thompson scores team-high 21 vs. Hornets


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Warriors guard Klay Thompson scored a team-high 21 points on 7 of 13 shooting, including 4 of 6 shooting from three-point range, in hs team's 112-87 win over the Hornets Saturday.

The Warriors' starting five dominated this game, with all five logging a plus-23 or plus-24 rating in the game. Thompson led the charge, scoring at least 20 points for the third straight game while racking up five assists, four rebounds, three steals and one block in 27 minutes. The Warriors will be looking for their third straight win Sunday against the Lakers.


Warriors SG Klay Thompson scores 25 points in win vs. Nets


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/14/2014) Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson scored a team-high 25 points on 8 of 22 shooting, includin 4 of 9 shooting from behind the arc, in his team's 107-99 win over the Nets Thursday.

Thompson overcame a poor shooting percentage to deliver his second straight game with at least 25 points while adding four rebounds, two assists and two steals in 36 minutes. He's run hot and cold this season, shooting less than 40 percent three times and 50 percent of better four times during his seven games. He'll hope for more hot and less cold Saturday against the Hornets.


Klay Thompson not a sell-high candidate


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/12/2014) Warriors guard Klay Thompson is off to the best start of his career, which might have Fantasy owners wondering if now is the time to cash him in via trade, before he regresses. At the Fantasy Basketball Today blog, I took a look at Thompson's play, to see if regression might be in his future:

"Thompson is showcasing skills he only ever flashed before, most notably his ability to get to the rim and draw free throws. He is taking 33.0 percent of his shots within 10 feet of the rim, up from 22.3 percent last season. He has sustained his high-volume 3-point sharpshooting while doing so, and is on pace to break his personal record for free-throw attempts in a season sometime around Christmas."

Ultimately, selling high on Thompson may not be the right call at this point. The Warriors' offense is allowing him a bit more freedom to create, and a summer spent learning with Team USA, and it seems to have paid off. He'll come back to earth a bit, but Thompson looks to have taken a big step forward.

"I wanted to (play), but at the same time, I do realize it’s Nov. 9, and I didn’t want to go risk it out there," Thompson said after the game. "I could shoot, but it wasn’t with any power. I couldn’t really do nothing with any zip on the ball. My hand was just 60 percent.

"I’ll be back Tuesday (for a home game against San Antonio)."

Report: Contract talks frustrating Warriors' Klay Thompson


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/25/2014) Guard Klay Thompson's camp is growing frustrated that the Warriors have yet to offer a max contract as the Friday deadline nears, according to Yahoo! Sports Saturday.

Thompson, who was nearly shipped to Minnesota as part of the Kevin Love trade in the offseason, is seeking a maximum deal that would pay him roughly $15 million per season. If both sides don't reach a deal by Friday, Thompson will become a restricted free agent at the end of the 2014-15 season.

Klay Thompson's dad feels son should get max contract


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/14/2014) Guard Klay Thompson is seeking a max contract from the Warriors. According to his father, Mychal Thompson, the fourth-year guard deserves it, according to the San Jose Mercury News.

"He’s going to get paid, but the question is how much is he going to get paid?" Mychal said Monday on the ESPN LA radio show he co-hosts. "You think he’s going to get the max? That’s what he’s asking for.

"I think he is (a max player), but of course, I’m his dad. You know what, though? If he wasn’t, I would say it. I can be honest about it. I think he is. I really do. His game’s really evolving, getting better, and he really puts in the work, got a great work ethic. And he’s the kind of guy that you can trust. You know when you give him the money, he’s not going to stop working hard."


Report: Warriors, SG Klay Thompson at impasse in talks


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) Despite their unwillingness to trade shooting guard Klay Thompson for Kevin Love in the offseason, the Warriors have refused to offer him a max contract.

The team has three weks to preemptively offer a contract extention that would keep Thompson around for at least five more years. But Thompson is asking for a deal worth at least $15 million, which leaves him about $3 million apart from the team, sources have told CSNBayArea.com. The Warriors are paying power forward David Lee that amount.

Thompson has progressed in each of his three seasons and averaged 18.4 points per game on 44.4 percent shooting last year.


Report: Wolves, Warriors Kevin Love deal 'dead'


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2014) What seemed like a deal inching toward completion just a week ago is now considered "dead." According to Bleacher Report, talks between the Timberwolves and Warriors have ceased, making a deal involving Kevin Love "unlikely" to occur before the draft. 

Reports last week revolved around a possible Klay Thompson for Love swap that could include future draft picks or additional pieces, but apparently neither side could agree on exact terms. 


Warriors willing to deal Klay Thompson as part of possible Kevin Love trade


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(6/19/2014) Golden State may have just moved one step closer to trading for Kevin Love, as ESPN reported Thursday that the team would be willing to part ways with Klay Thompson to sweeten a potential deal with the Timberwolves. 

The Warriors would likely swap David Lee and perhaps a future first round pick to acquire Love's services for the coming season. A potential deal will now come down to whether the Timberwolves prefer a player-heavy or pick-heavy offer.

No matter where he ends up, Love currently stands to become a free agent in the summer of 2015, further complicating potential trade scenarios.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
