Explain One Play: Nuclear Klay Thompson stagger flares and follows his way to 12 threes against OKC
He appears to be getting healthier
A list of all Explain One Play articles and videos is at The new Explain One Play index.
Klay Thompson hit 12 threes in the Golden State Warriors - Oklahoma City Thunder game on 2023.02.07.OKC-GSW to power GSW to a comfortable win. He used an array of flares and screens on the perimeter and we will do a deep dive on one action where he sets a stagger screen and then flares out or follows the ball for a spot up jumper.
Co-starring Stephen Curry, Jordan Poole, Kevon Looney, Draymond Green and Ty Jerome.

With the trade deadline coming up, *if* the Warriors trade Wiseman and Moody (disclaimer: not advocating), they'll still need a center who fits their system to split time with Loon. Haven't watched enough Minny ball, but based on recent games against them, Naz Reid could be a good long-term answer - athletic, defends, rebounds, finishes inside, hits the occasional 3. He could probably crack the rotation and provide insurance as a big. https://twitter.com/NBA/status/1619530004156776448?
He's looking for 10M / year in an extension, less than Wise would make next year.
Of course, it would have to be a 3-team trade or separate trades, as the Wolves already have KAT and Gobert, and don't want to pay 10+M to a third center. I think they are looking for Wings.
So Moody to Minny for Reid, who only makes 2M this year, + a min contract like Bryn Forbes? Too much? Too little? Wiseman would have to go for an expiring or to a team under the cap for maybe a future pick, or be kept until after the season.
Cam Thomas though.. I can root for the nets once they trade away KD
