Klay Thompson draws free agency interest from 76ers, Nuggets, Mavericks – NBC Sports Bay Area & California

Another day, another Klay Thompson rumor. But with the NBA free agent window just 48 hours away, things are getting worse than ever.

With each passing day, the odds that Thompson’s time in the Gulf is coming to an end seem to grow. If so, several teams have been rumored to be interested in the veteran pitcher.

The Athletic’s Philadelphia 76ers are one of those teams Reported by Sam Amick and Anthony Slater Friday morning, citing a source, the Denver Nuggets are also in the process of losing impending free agent Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who declined his player option and will hit the open market on Sunday.

Amick and Slater reported, citing a source, that Denver has “identified Thompson as a potential replacement” for Caldwell-Pope if he signs elsewhere.

Amick and Slater added that “a range of other competing teams” have also expressed interest in including Thompson, depending on his price.

League sources said that Amick and Slater did not directly mention the names of those competing teams NBA Insider Mark Stein The Dallas Mavericks, with some new financial flexibility after selling Tim Hardaway Jr. to the Detroit Pistons on Friday, are interested in “exploring the feasibility” of signing Thompson in free agency.

Thompson, who is seeking at least a three-year contract, could help Denver as a two-way play, especially in place of Caldwell-Pope, and could also offer his shooting services to Dallas, one of the team’s biggest offseason priorities.

Golden State wants Thompson back. Thompson said (a few months ago) that he wanted to retire with the team that drafted him in 2011. A lot has changed since then.

But the clock is ticking on a decision. And if Thompson and the Warriors part ways, it seems the five-time NBA All-Star has plenty of options elsewhere.
