After the storm comes the calm. This occurs in Golden State Warriors, after the serious injury of the escort Klay Thompson, which will miss the 2020-2021 season of the National Basketball Association (NBA), and that he will be able to officially replace him for the next contest.
This, because, according to the insider Shams Charania, from The Athletic, the competition has decided to allow the San Francisco franchise to use the Disabled Player Exception, by $ 9.3 million, to sign a last reinforcement for the championship.
The report notes that while the NBA free agency window is about to end, The Warriors will have until April 19, 2021 to sign a player to replace Thompson, which must meet the following conditions:
– Be a Free Agent
– One year contract
– Salary for the season of up to $ 9.3 million.
Thompson begins his recovery in Warriors
But there is also good news in the Californian box, thanks to the Splash Brother, as Adrian Wojnarowski, of the chain ESPN, has confirmed that his Achilles tendon surgery was successfully performed at a Los Angeles clinic, under the supervision of the Dr. Richard Ferkel.
The information adds that Thompson has begun his rehabilitation since Thursday that will have him throughout the next NBA season out of competition, being the second in a row that he will see from the stands.
A giant loss for the Warriors, since they will not be able to count in their ranks with a player who has five appearances in the All-Star Game, three champion rings, twice was part of the All NBA First Team and once was selected for the best defensive team.
