The deadline for extensions for rookie contracts is quickly approaching and it seems that the Warriors and Klay's agent are still off from each other by a few million dollars. Klay is surely seeking max money while the Warriors are hoping they can sign him for less. However Klay has signaled that he would rather secure a long term contract this season instead of taking the tender and becoming a RFA next year. That's what seeing an injury like Paul George's can do to you. From ESPN here is why the Warriors should definitely seek a deal now: "The Warriors could have their backcourt of Thompson and Stephen Curry for under $30 million combined, which would be about 30 percent of the salary cap. Compare that to the 50 to 57 percent of the cap that duos such as Kevin Durant/Russell Westbrook, Derrick Rose/Joakim Noah and Dwight Howard/James Harden eat up this season, and imagine the flexibility that would give the Warriors to build around their stellar guards in 2016-17." Definitely sounds like a good move to me. Pay the man.

Given the market right now he should definitely be getting the max or very near it
