Klay is not stupid. Take the max contract. Warriors will be back in the playoffs next year. Watch all the other teams over look GSW and win the championship.
gonna be the one of the most intriguing free agencies ever…even with Klay and KD hurt
That’s crazy. Max deal to someone who may not come back the same. He is a great player though
Klay feels slighted by not being all NBA. Cost him 30m. Dubs should max him. Good guy…great teammate.
