But he didn’t get every term in his favor.
Anthony Slater of The Athletic:
Golden State faces major changes with Kevin Durant heading to the Nets and Thompson out with a torn ACL. Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala will probably keep the team winning. But Green and Iguodala are entering the final years of their contracts. Green wants a big raise, and Iguodala is aging. That all creates plenty of uncertainty.
Without a player option and no-trade clause, Thompson will have less control of his situation.
That’s probably worth it to secure so much money, especially while the 29-year-old is sidelined by a major injury.
