The Golden State Warriors co-owner Joe Lacob talked on re-signing swingman Klay Thompson, who torn his ACL in Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals:
“There was no doubt in my mind, whatsoever (they would resign Thompson). I, and we, want Klay to be here for a long time. He’s one of my favorite players in the world.
ACLs … not good, ok we know that. But stuff happens and that’s an injury that now people know how to manage. Plenty of people have come back from ACLs and done pretty well. Honestly, it didn’t even remotely cross my mind,” Lacob said.
This past season, the 29-year-old sharpshooter averaged 21.5 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game.
