The Golden State Warriors reportedly expect shooting guard Klay Thompson to re-sign during or before the upcoming offseason.
According to The Athletic's Ethan Strauss, there is an "expectation within and outside" the Warriors organization that Thompson will remain with Golden State.
Strauss noted that due to the perception that Thompson isn't going anywhere, the Los Angeles Lakers are the only team that has been seriously mentioned as a threat to sign him away from Golden State.
Thompson is an L.A. native, and his father, Mychal Thompson, starred for the Lakers for five seasons and won two championships with them.
Also, Thompson would undoubtedly be a great fit alongside LeBron James in Los Angeles given his shooting ability.
While Thompson takes a backseat to Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant at times with the Warriors, he is still a four-time All-Star who is having another solid year with 21.6 points per game and 2.7 three-pointers made per contest.
