Steve Kerr feels Klay Thompson wants to stay with Warriors
The Golden State Warriors’ future remains uncertain due to the fact that two key players are eyeing free agency this summer, but there appears to be some confidence that at least one of them will stay.
Guard Klay Thompson is set to hit the open market this summer. Warriors coach Steve Kerr believes that everyone in the organization wants him to stay — and, more importantly, that the feeling is mutual.
“I know that everybody — coaches, management, ownership — everybody wants Klay back,” Kerr said, via Nick Friedell of ESPN. “I think the feeling is just, Klay wants to be here, we want Klay.”
The speculation will not be dying out anytime soon, and there are some reports that Thompson wants a larger role in the Golden State offense. That would likely come if he stays and Kevin Durant leaves, but there’s no guarantee of that, either. It will be one of the most intriguing subplots of the summer, but it’s logical that the ideal scenario for everyone is that they ultimately stay together.
