Klay Thompson jumps to score a basket

Klay Thompson has worn his Golden State jersey for the last time. The Warriors plan to retire it in honor of his time with them.

Thompson is leaving the Warriors after agreeing to join the Dallas Mavericks, the Western Conference champions. This marks the first time in his 13-year NBA career that he will switch teams, according to two sources familiar with the decision on Monday.

ESPN and The Athletic were the first to report the details of the deal, which involves a three-year, $50 million contract and a sign-and-trade arrangement between the Warriors, Mavericks, and Charlotte Hornets. The sources spoke anonymously to The Associated Press because the deal hasn’t been officially announced.

The Warriors acknowledged Thompson’s departure with a statement on Monday night, celebrating his remarkable contributions to the team. They highlighted his ability to perform under pressure, including memorable moments in Game 6 situations.

The team expressed gratitude for the joy Thompson brought to fans and emphasized his lasting legacy.

Thompson ranks sixth in NBA history for career 3-pointers made, trailing players like Reggie Miller, Damian Lillard, James Harden, Ray Allen, and his former teammate Stephen Curry. Last season, there were signs suggesting Thompson and the Warriors might part ways, with Thompson occasionally coming off the bench and his 3-point shooting slightly below his career average.
