Re-signing five-time All-Star guard Klay Thompson remains a priority for the Warriors, team owner Joe Lacob told Yahoo Sports in the wake of the torn left ACL the star suffered Thursday in Game 6 of the NBA Finals.
Thompson, who according to the report is expected to miss up to 10 months because of the injury, was seeking a max contract this summer in free agency. The injury might complicate things this offseason, but Lacob says he remains intent on bringing back Thompson, 29.
