The Golden State Warriors are interested in signing Klay Thompson to a contract extension.

Thompson was the subject of trade rumors this offseason with the Warriors ultimately deciding to leave him off the table for Kevin Love.

"We value him in the highest way, and we want to keep him on this team for a long time," Bob Myers said Tuesday.

Myers preferred to keep the backcourt of Thompson and Stephen Curry intact. 

"I think most people believe it to be the best, one of the best backcourts in the NBA, and I don't think that that's a minority opinion. I think it's a majority opinion," Myers said. "That's part of the team you don't worry about too much, right? I mean, that part is good, which is hard to find. 

"The two guard in the NBA is a depleted position, so we feel like if we can move forward with those two guys, we're in pretty good shape."
