Warriors general manager Bob Myers expects contract extension talks with guard Klay Thompson’s agent, Bill Duffy, to continue into the start of the season. Myers told 95.7 The Game on Wednesday before the team’s season opener in Sacramento that the two sides have been talking daily. If they cannot strike a deal before Friday, Thompson will become a restricted free agent after the season when the Warriors can match another team’s offer sheet. “As long as you’re talking, deals have a chance of getting done,” Myers told the station. “You worry about a deal getting done if both sides aren’t speaking, and we’re talking, and we’ll see. It seems like a short window here, but still got about 48 hours to see if we can consummate something, so we’re hoping we can, and we’ll keep working at it.” Contra Costa Times

Mychal Thompson has said that his son, Klay, is seeking a maximum-salary contract. Myers has declined to comment on the nature of negotiations with the 24-year-old Thompson, who averaged a team-leading 21.7 points per game in the preseason. Contra Costa Times
