The acquisition of Andre Iguodala could send Klay Thompson to the Golden State Warriors' bench, but the young shooting guard is confident he would be able to make that transition if needed, having been a reserve most of his rookie season.

"It took me a few games to get used to it because I'd started my whole life," Thompson said. "Once I got used to it and once I found my rhythm, it was nothing to me. You can still be a great player off the bench.

"I'm not too worried about (starting). I'm just worried about getting better and getting in the best shape I can."

Concerned about the team first, Thompson has fully endorsed the signing of Iguodala.

"I was happy I don't have to go against him any more," Thompson said. "He's going to be great for us. He's a good scorer but he's an even better playmaker. He's a great leader. I can see it in these two weeks I've been here. He's going to help us. He's going to be like a swiss army knife. ... That's a huge signing for us."
