Kevin Durant may not be the only player the Golden State Warriors have to worry about keeping during free agency this offseason.

According to reports, All-Star shooting guard Klay Thompson will consider other options if the team fails to offer him a a five-year, $190 million max contract extension. One of the other teams on his mind? the Los Angeles Clippers.

The Clippers, who took the Warriors to six games in their hard-fought first round series last month, have enough cap space to sign multiple star players to max deals, a promising young core in tact, and one of the best head coaches in the league to entice Thompson via free agency.

The 29-year old, who was selected 11th overall in the 2011 NBA Draft, has averaged a combined 19.5 points on 45.9% field goal percentage and 41.9 three-point percentage, 3.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists in eight seasons and 615 regular season games with the franchise.

He is also three-time NBA champion (2015, 2017, 2018), five-time NBA All-Star (2015–2019), and has been selected to the All-NBA Third Team (2015, 2016) twice in his pro career.

The city of Toronto could be welcoming more than the NHL when professional sports finally make their return.

According to Yahoo! Sports insider Chris Haynes, Toronto is among the cities being discussed as a possible ‘hub location’ to host NBA games whenever the league finally decides to resume. It was mentioned during a conference call involving NBA commissioner Adam Silver

“(Silver) mentioned Toronto in that conference call, too,” Haynes told Sportsnet earlier this week.

“He said Toronto is an option, but he would like to keep the season in the States. But he said he’s not ruling out Toronto.”

Despite all of this, Toronto basketball fans should keep their expectations in check. Orlando and Las Vegas are apparently the two most likely cities that will host games when the league returns to action.

More to come.
