Thompson averaged 21.5 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game in the 2018-19 season on 46.7 percent shooting from the field, 40.2 percent from the 3-point line and 81.6 percent from the free throw line.
Thompson then averaged 20.7 points per game on 44.3 percent shooting from the perimeter in the playoffs, but he suffered a torn ACL in Game 6 of the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors.
It's unknown when Thompson will return from the injury, though he is expected to play next season, possibly by February or March.
Thompson will now be the second-highest paid player on the Warriors behind Stephen Curry, who signed a five-year, $201 million contract with the team in 2017.
We ranked Thompson as the No. 1 shooting guard in this free agency class.
Players can negotiate agreements with teams on July 1st but contracts can't be officially signed until the new league year begins on July 7.
