Klay Thompson had been utterly significant in the Warriors’ four championship wins. Thompson has also experienced difficulties as of late, especially on the defensive end of the court. He has sustained several injuries including an Achilles rupture that made him not play for an entire season. These injuries have indeed slowed his progress. Klay made a comeback in the 2021–22 season. He played 32 games and averaged 29.4 minutes per game. That was the lowest since he started his rookie season.

Despite these challenges, Thompson is determined to stay with the Warriors and wants to play basketball after his current deal expires. Although Thompson’s role and compensation expectations may need to be changed, the organization and the player are expected to discuss contract extension options.
