Ranking The Top Scores Of An Action-Packed NBA Free Agency

Klay Thompson – SG, Golden State Warriors:

Finally, we arrive at the biggest contract of the absolutely insane 2019 NBA free agency season. Thompson needs no introduction as a member of Golden State’s infamous ‘Splash Brothers’ with Steph Curry. He averaged 21.5 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 2.4 assists last year as the Warriors made the NBA Finals again.

Things got complicated when Thompson tore his ACL against Toronto in a losing effort by Golden State. Still, there was really no other option for the team than to re-sign him to a max five-year, $189,903,600 deal averaging $37,980,720 a season with a cap hit of $32,742,000.

Thompson has quite a ways to go towards his recovery. But overall, he’s still one of the best pure shooters in the league today. If Golden State wanted to keep their core intact, they needed to make this huge deal, and they did. Thus, Thompson signed the biggest deal of the NBA’s craziest free agency period of all-time.
