The 2019 NBA off-season is set to be one of the wildest ones in recent memory. There are superstars, All-Stars and other stand-out players set to hit the open market as free agents.
For the Sixers, if they're unable to reel in LeBron James or Paul George this summer, they'd be smart to turn their attention to targeting stars in the 2019 off-season.
One of their likely top targets might not be available for the taking anymore, if he ever was.
Per The Athletic, Warriors sharpshooter Klay Thompson is discussing a "team-friendly" contract extension with Golden State.
The Athletic has confirmed the sides met in October in China and discussed an extension. Both parties agreed to table talks until this coming offseason as Thompson is adamant about not being distracted with contract stuff. But they will see about hammering out and finalizing an extension once all the relevant factors are more clear. That is on the table. If the sides agree this offseason, Thompson will not hit the free-agent market for up to another five years.
