Klay Thompson September 2014

Klay Thompson and his camp are looking to do whatever they can to convince the Golden State Warriors to get a deal done before the October 31 deadline.

Thompson is seeking a max deal from the Warriors, but doesn't want to go through next year's NBA free agency period to do so. Instead, he prefers to get a deal done now. He has until the end of next month to make that happen, though.

To convince Golden State, I guess, his agent proclaimed Thompson as the best two-way shooting guard in the NBA.

"I don't want (Los Angeles Lakers star) Kobe Bryant to go crazy, but there's some uncertainty as to who he is right now (because of injuries that limited him to six games last season)," agent Bill Duffy told USA Today. "But I think Klay Thompson right now is the top two-way, two-guard in basketball. I think when you look at his body of work, when you look at what he accomplished guarding point guards on a regular basis (last season), I think it's pretty clear."

Duffy definitely has a point, and it's the right thing to say about his client. His point seems valid, considering Kobe is 36 years old now and only played six games last season.

Still, there's going to be controversy over that saying.
