OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- The Golden State Warriors have exercised their third-year option on shooting guard Klay Thompson.
The announcement Thursday will keep Thompson with the Warriors through the 2013-14 season.
The 22-year-old played in all 66 games last season. He averaged 12.5 points, 2.4 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 24 minutes to earn first-team All-Rookie honors.
Golden State drafted Thompson 11th overall out of Washington State. He led all rookies in 3-point percentage at 41 percent, and 3-pointers made with 111.
The Warriors open the regular season Wednesday night at Phoenix. Thompson is expected to start at shooting guard this season.

I'm trying to think of a 1st round rookie which team's didn't exercise exercise their team option.

Anywho, it was a no-brainer.
From "we believe", to "we belong", to "we gon beatcho ass!"

With the lack of elite shooting guard talent in the west, it isn't a stretch to call him a future all-star. Kid can score from anywhere on the floor.

I love Thompson and I am not disagreeing with you, but that is a bold statement sir. Especially considering the kind of numbers Monta put up without getting an all-star nod.
