Klay Thompson Abruptly Cuts Ties With Stephen Curry Amid Lakers Rumors

Klay Thompson Abruptly Cuts Ties With Stephen Curry Amid Lakers Rumors

Klay Thompson is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. The Golden State Warriors had the option of retaining him long-term, as they previously chose to do with Draymond Green, but instead opted not to.

Worse yet, last year, Golden State kicked the tires on a trade with the Los Angeles Lakers that almost certainly would have sent Thompson to L.A. He wasn’t too happy about that.

Now the market will decide where Thompson ends up.

On Friday the 34-year-old made headlines when he seemingly went on a mass unfollowing spree. He appeared to unfollow the Warriors on social media and then opted to delete a bunch of old photos. One in particular involving Stephen Curry stood out:

“Yeah, he’s gone,” one fan wrote.

“Yeahhhhh he’s up outta there. Sounds like a bitter break up,” another person agreed.

“Klay to the Lakers soon,” a third fan chimed in.

It is hard to argue with that pessimistic assessment of what is going on here.

Generally speaking, guys don’t go on mass unfollow sprees when they are returning to a particular team.

Earlier this month, a leak of four teams Thompson would be willing to go to leaked out.

One way or another, Thompson’s future will be decided this summer. Where will he ultimately be playing when the 2024-25 NBA season tips off? Time will tell.
