According to multiple reports, Klay Thompson is staying with the Golden State Warriors on a five-year $190 million max deal.
And, yes, Klay Thompson is getting the five-year, $190 max from Golden State, sources reiterate. A done deal even before today

With all the moves over the first few hours in free agency, talks were quiet from Thompson and the Warriors. He reportedly agreed to the deal before free agency even started.
Thompson will be recovering from a torn ACL which happened in the NBA Finals, but is expected to make a full recovery. He averaged 21.5 points and shot 40.2 percent from deep last season. He is a three-time champion and a five-time All-Star.
Golden State made a trade for D’Angelo Russell to help replace some of the scoring lost with Kevin Durant leaving for the Nets. The Warriors will likely struggle without having Thompson’s defense on the court.
