NBA News: Klay Thompson Has The ‘Right Attitude’ About Trade Talks

Trade rumors have started to heat up with less than a week to go before the NBA Draft. Kevin Love is the biggest name on the trading block, but Klay Thompson recently emerged with talk of the Golden State Warriors potentially sending him to the Los Angeles Lakers in a three-way deal.

This is the first time Thompson has been mentioned in trade talks and his father, Mychal, thinks his son is handling it well, according to Diamond Leung of Inside The Warriors:

“He’s got the right attitude,” Mychal said. “He’s not getting personally offended by his name being rumored to go someplace. He understands that unless your name is LeBron James or it’s Kevin Durant, anybody could be thrown into a trade or talked about in a trade.

“So he’s got a professional approach about it, and if he ends up with the Lakers, great. He’ll make the most of it. He’ll be thrilled to be (in Los Angeles). But if he stays with Golden State, then he’ll be happy to stay up there with those guys. If he got traded to Minnesota? I told him, ‘Hey, you get to play with Ricky Rubio, the best passer in the game.”

With the trade talks stalled at the moment due to the Warriors’ reluctance to include Thompson in a deal for Love, the future of the sharpshooter remains uncertain. It seems as though Golden State is intent on acquiring Love, but Thompson may or may not end up in Los Angeles.

Although rumors have surfaced about the Minnesota Timberwolves wanting to trade Love before the NBA Draft, the superstar forward may very well end up playing another season for the struggling franchise. Love will continue to be mentioned as a hot commodity of the trade market, but there’s no telling when or if he’s traded before becoming a free agent next summer.
