October 25 2012 at 1:04pm CST By Luke Adams

The Warriors have officially exercised their third-year option on Klay Thompson, according to a team release. That ensures that Thompson will make a guaranteed $2.32MM salary in 2013/14.

Thompson, who averaged 12.5 PPG for the Warriors in his rookie season, was voted the most likely player to have a breakout season by NBA general managers in NBA.com's annual survey. Golden State will have one more team option on him for the 2014/15 season, worth $3.08MM. Assuming that fourth-year option is picked up, Thompson will be eligible for restricted free agency in the summer of 2015.
