Warriors owner expresses desire for Stephen Curry, Draymond Green, and Klay Thompson to remain with the franchise until retirement

Undoubtedly, the failure of the Golden State Warriors to capture the championship this year was disappointing since they were successful in capturing the NBA title in 2022. Due to the fact that Klay Thompson is currently serving the final year of his contract, considerable rumor has been generated over his future.

The Warriors are hopeful that they will be able to re-sign him and preserve his cohesion with Stephen Curry and Draymond Green according to owner Joe Lacob, who recently spoke to M.Kenney of The Mercury News.

Joe Lacob sets goals for Steph, Draymond, and Klay

The owner of the Warriors has a singular objective for the trio that has brought home four championships during their tenure with the team. The Warriors were defeated by the Lakers in the Western Conference playoffs one year after winning the NBA championship.

The Warriors’ summer of change began with that defeat. Bob Myers, the general manager who oversaw four titles, retired from his position. Golden State’s basketball operations are currently overseen by Mike Dunleavy Jr., who received a promotion.

Owner Joe Lacob discussed the franchise’s future while keeping all of this in mind, and as Curry, Thompson, and Green enter the latter phases of their careers, he has one wish for them. “Certainly we’d like Steph, Draymond, and Klay to retire as Warriors,” Lacob declared. That’s my goal, our goal, and I think it’s a good likelihood that’ll happen.”

Thompson and coach Steve Kerr, who is also entering the final year of his contract, should be the Warriors’ top objectives going forward because Curry is still in the middle of the maximum deal he signed in 2022 and Green is now committed for the following four seasons. Lacob was unconcerned about losing Kerr after expressing hope for an extension with Thompson.

Will Klay stay with the Warriors?

After the 2023–24 season, Klay “Big Smokey” Thompson’s ongoing arrangement with the Warriors will expire, although he plans to sign a new one and continue his NBA career. “There’s a report out there—I have no intention of retiring in 2024,” he informed correspondents. “If you write some dumb s–t like that, be held accountable. That’s crazy. Just because I didn’t play five-on-five doesn’t mean I’m gonna retire. That is absurd.”


Last season, he played in 32 games overall, and his 29.4 minutes allocation per game was the fewest starting with his debut season in 2011-12. Even yet, Thompson was still able to help the Warriors win their fourth career title. The five-time All-Star will always be remembered as a legend for his team, but he will turn 33 this year and has had more serious injuries than most players do at any point in their careers.

Although Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole recently signed long-term contracts with Golden State Warriors, a Draymond Green dilemma is also looming because he has a player option for the upcoming season. It would indeed be surprising to see him play for another team.
