Report: Klay Thompson could consider Clippers if Warriors offer less than max

Report: Klay Thompson could consider Clippers if Warriors offer less than max The biggest question for the Golden State Warriors heading into the offseason is obviously the impending free agency of Kevin Durant, but they also need to write a big check to Klay Thompson if they want him to stick around. And if the amount of that check is anything less than the maximum allowed under the NBA’s salary cap, the sharpshooter may decide he is better off elsewhere. During Monday’s edition of ESPN’s “Get Up,” Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Thompson will re-sign with the Warriors this summer without hesitation if they offer him a max contract. If not, the Los Angeles Clippers will be a team to keep an eye on.

Jerry West doesn't plan on leaving his role with the Clippers anytime soon.

The Hall of Famer and longtime NBA executive, who will turn 81 at the end of this month, agreed to a new contract to continue as the franchise's consultant in a front-office advisory role, according to the Los Angeles Times, which cited an unidentified source.

West's role with the Clippers began in June 2017 after he had served as an executive board member for the Warriors dating back to 2011. He said at his introductory press conference in 2017: "Here I am on the last adventure of my life."

Clippers special consultant Jerry West has agreed to a new contract to stay with the franchise, league sources tell @TheAthleticNBA @Stadium. Charania is also reporting that West had an expiring deal with the Clippers , but owner Steve Ballmer has been having contract discussions with West as of late.

The Clippers have now retained three of their key front-office executives in the last month as general manager Michael Winger and assistant general manager Trent Redden both decided to stay in Los Angeles, despite receiving interest from other teams around the league.

"We are building something truly special in LA, and I want to be part of the group that rewards our loyal and passionate fans,” Winger said in April in reference to his decision to stay.

West brings a unique skill set to the Clippers as he spent his entire 14-year playing career with the crosstown Lakers, and keeping the Clippers' front office together will be a big benefit heading into free agency.

It's been speculated Los Angeles could pursue the Raptors' Kawhi Leonard and the Warriors' Kevin Durant, though anything can happen during the offseason.

Despite trading away Tobias Harris to the 76ers at February's trade deadline, coach Doc Rivers still led the team to a 48-34 regular-season record, allowing the Clippers to reach the playoffs. They lost their opening-round series 4-2 against the Warriors, but they exceeded preseason expectations and could be well positioned to land a star in free agency.
