HoopsHype Klay Thompson rumors

November 23, 2014 Updates

When asked if Curry and Thompson are the best backcourt in the NBA, Thompson deferred. "I don't really care about that," Thompson said. "If there were two people on the court and it was us versus them, it would be a different story. But it's five of us on the court. Our goal is to play into June [in the NBA Finals]. It's not to have the labels as the best backcourt." During the off-season, many reports said Thompson was going to be traded to Minnesota for All-Star power forward Kevin Love, who wound up in Cleveland. Los Angeles Times

Then last month Thompson signed a four-year contract extension for $70 million. "It was important to get the extension," Thompson said. "But at the same time, if it didn't happen, I was going to do what I do — just play hard, score the ball and defend." "Our owner just gave him $70 million so I'm sure he's happy," Kerr said, laughing. "That sold him. That told him how much we wanted him." Los Angeles Times

Thompson deflected a lot of the praise for his hot start to teammates, specifically Andrew Bogut. "We're just scratching the surface of what we can be," Thompson declared. "Coach Kerr has really put an emphasis on moving the ball. We're without one of our best passing big men right now in David Lee. When we get him back, he's gonna make us that more dangerous ... Andrew Bogut has been such a good player for us. I can't describe how good his passing is. He gets me so many good looks every night. I should give a percentage of my contract to him now..."

Zach Lowe: Not sure if this has been reported yet, but Klay Thompson's extension is technically not a max. Explanation tomorrow on @Grantland33. (The difference is probably going to be negligible/nothing, but GSW did something interesting with Klay's contract). Twitter @ZachLowe_NBA

On Monday, the NBA named Thompson the Western Conference player of the week after averaging 29.7 points and shooting 53.7% from the floor, including 45.5% on threes, as Golden State opened the season 3-0. "He's just playing well and staying confident and living in the moment which is huge for him," backcourt partner Stephen Curry said. "Obviously, he's been a big talk of the league and he's been able to answer it with his play on the court and by staying focused on what's really important. Every contribution he's made has been huge for us to get these three wins." USA Today Sports
