State Warriors Rumors

The Kings, who worked Thompson out last Saturday, and Charlotte Bobcats, owners of the ninth overall pick, both have strong interest. Golden State is hopeful, but doesn’t expect Thompson to be available when it drafts 11th. The Warriors are so intrigued by Thompson that co-owner Joe Lacob, new coach Mark Jackson and the entire front office attended Friday’s workout. Warriors general manager Larry Riley continues to dismiss rumors that guard Monta Ellis is being shopped and likes the idea of a three-guard rotation with Thompson, Ellis and Stephen Curry(notes).
