Warriors owner Joe Lacob said on Thursday that the team will "unequivocally" re-sign Klay Thompson.
95.7 The Game on Twitter
Thompson does not hit restricted free agency until the 2015-2016 season, but the Warriors are committed to making him and Steph Curry the backcourt duo in Golden State for the foreseeable future. Thompson has increased his scoring average each year of his career, and was second in the league this season in 3-pointers made with 223. If Thompson continues to improve his game, not only will he be one of the top fantasy shooting guards, he will also be in line for a huge pay day.
Warriors center Festus Ezeli admitted frustration over the slow recovery of his surgically-repaired right knee.
Ezeli had surgery 10 months ago with an expected recovery time of 6-9 months, but he only recently was cleared to bend his knee. It's very unlikely that he'll be healthy enough to appear in the playoffs, which is unfortunate for the Warriors since they're already without Andrew Bogut (rib).
Draymond Green said on the radio Tuesday that he's upset about all the contact Stephen Curry took against the Clippers in Game 2 on Monday.

"It pissed me off, and we'll remember that," Green said on KNBR radio. Curry and the Warriors were dominated in Game 2 and the series is now tied 1-1, with Game 3 set for Thursday at Golden State. These two teams didn't like each other before the series started, and tempers could flare before it's over.
