Warriors Keep Klay
Smart move by the Golden State Warriors to keep Klay Thompson. With no viable option to replace him, the upgrade from Lee to Love on the offensive end would be negated by the downgrade in backcourt with the loss of Klay. Warriors front office don't like Lee's defense and were concerned Love's defense is even worse. Finding a backcourt that can shoot and play together like Klay and Steph do isn't something to mess with. Love would be a great addition (or even a lesser quality PF that shoots 3s efficiently) but not at the expense of Klay. Speights and Green can come in and play PF in spurts and can stretch the defense out to the 3 pt line, or almost the line, to help add that element to the team without Love.
