Klay Thompson October 2014

Golden State Warriors splash brother Klay Thompson is one of the top shooting guards in the NBA, and he sticks to wanting to be paid like one.

Thompson is seeking a max contract from the Warriors, and sources say anything less is "absurd," the camp says.

From Pro Basketball Talk:

Klay Thompson’s camp is frustrated that the Golden State Warriors haven’t offered a maximum contract in their ongoing extension talks with Friday’s deadline nearing, sources told Yahoo Sports.

Thompson is seeking a maximum deal paying upward of $15 million per season, a source said. The Warriors have improved their offer to get in the vicinity but have not offered a full maximum contract, sources said. …

Warriors owner Joe Lacob has yet to become comfortable offering a maximum extension, sources said. A source close to Thompson said any offer shy of a max would be “absurd” considering his improvement and the influx of money to come to NBA teams from the next television contract.

The Warriors now have less than a week to get a deal done, or else they'll have to do it in the offseason after the 2014-15 season.
