Klay Thompson would be experiencing a tense climate with the Warriors owner

According to a journalist, the Golden State Warriors star and multiple champion for the franchise would not be on the best terms with the team's owner

Experiencing one of the worst seasons of his life, with poor performance on the court, the Golden State Warriors also faces some problems outside the four lines. One of them, perhaps the main one, recently came to light. According to the journalist Sam Amickfrom “The Athletic”, there is a tense atmosphere in the relationship between Klay Thompson It is Joe Lacobowner of the California franchise.

The tension between the four-time champion and the executive began after the number 11 had no guarantee that he would remain in the squad. At this moment, Thompson is in the final year of his contract and, to date, has not started negotiating with the team. The expectation was that something would only happen during the athlete's free agency. But, according to sources who revealed the situation to the reporter, the Warriors did not guarantee his continuity within the rotation.

“Thompson always knew he would have to wait until free agency. After all, Lacob wanted to avoid a luxury salary, which would force them to expand their squad before adding new contracts. But it's clear their relationship has suffered some strain along the way, with league sources indicating that Thompson has received no assurances that his hopes of retiring happily in a Warriors jersey will be a shared priority this summer.”Amick revealed.

Klay has stated several times that he would like to retire as a Warriors player. Not even his change of role, which came with the loss of title to Brandin Podziemski, made him change his mind. But, the number 11 no longer denies that he can follow a different path. “In reality, this change of role does not influence what I will decide or not. I feel like I'm handling it really well. So what I think is still the same, actually. Of course, I will evaluate my options and understand what I have on my table. But I would love to play for the Warriors forever. This has been my home since I arrived in the NBA, so of course I want to be here until the end of my career.”said Thompson.

“But like I said, the league is a big deal. I will keep my head calm and play at my best until the end of the season. And then we'll see what happens. Whatever happens, I have a few more years to play and I intend to enjoy every second of it. I realize there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Playing until I'm 40, I already said I wanted that. But it may be too tiring. Man, exhausting, let’s see”concluded the winger.
