Klay Thompson confirmed he wants to remain with the Golden State Warriors as he gets closer to free agency in 2019.
“Absolutely,” Thompson said. “I’ve always said that. Playing for one team your whole career is definitely special. Only so many guys have done it in professional sports, so it’ll be a goal of mine. Hopefully it all works out.”
Thompson signed an extension with the Warriors in 2014.
“It’s so far away,” Thompson said of his pending free agency. “Anything I can do to stay with the Warriors is first and foremost. God willing, it happens. If not, I don’t even think about that.”
“He’s certainly shown his worth here,” Warriors general manager Bob Myers said of Thompson. “It’s pretty undeniable how important he is. There’s not a lot of guys that can do what he does and be as humble and selfless as he is.”
