The Golden State Warriors’ marquee shooter hasn’t been able to showcase his scoring prowess and elite skill set for more than 2 years now in the league but it doesn’t seem long before the splash brother returns to join forces with Stephen Curry and Draymond Green in the NBA 2021-22 Season. Moreover, his first workout session with the G-League team makes fans excited that the 31-years-old could very well return to his best in the shortest time possible.
To bring everyone on the same page, before Klay Thompson makes his way back completely to play in the league, he has been assigned to the Santa Cruz Warriors’ G-League to work through his rehab.
