NBA Free Agency Rumors: Klay Thompson, Warriors Agree on Max Contract

The time for semantics now is over.

Klay Thompson has officially agreed to sign his five-year, $190 million contract with the Warriors, the San Francisco Chronicle's Connor Letourneau reported Monday.

NBC Sports Bay Area's Monte Poole reported Saturday that the two sides had planned to come to an agreement and sign the contract when the moratorium is lifted July 6, and it appears nothing happened to make Thompson change his mind.

After Kevin Durant decided to bolt the Bay for the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday, some might have wondered if Thompson would waver and take a look at other franchises. Thompson never wavered and he'll be a part of the Warriors' core, along with Steph Curry and Draymond Green for the foreseeable future.

Even though Thompson will miss most of next season as he recovers from the torn ACL he suffered in Game 6 of the NBA Finals, the Warriors never intended on letting him even think of walking out the door.

Splash Brother. Warrior. For life. Or at least the next five seasons, As it should be.
