Even if Love is a genuinely real a possibility for his squad.
The Warriors have reportedly talked to the Minnesota Timberwolves about the potential of trading for Kevin Love. However, Thompson told Yahoo that he is getting the “vibe” that he isn’t going anywhere.
“We got a good core. I feel we have one of the better backcourts in the league,” Thompson, referring to his backcourt mate Stephen Curry, told Yahoo Sports on Sunday.
“I feel like we have a team that can do big things. Health is going to be huge, but I feel like we can make big strides this year.
“The fact that I haven’t been traded yet makes me feel comfortable. That speaks for itself.”
Thompson’s backcourt mate, Stephen Curry, relayed the same sentiment.
“Every year there is some rumor in play and teams are trying to make a power move,” Curry said. “But they’ve made a decision, at least it seems like they have, that Klay is an investment they don’t want to give up. That speaks volumes to what he has been able to do in his career and his potential. I’m happy that he’s my backcourt mate.”
With both Thompson and Curry on the court, the Warriors were a plus-7.2 and shot 41 percent from three-point range. Thompson averaged 18.4 points per game last season in Golden State, while shooting 44 percent from the field.
