The Orlando basketball team is considering Golden State defender Klay Thompson to bolster their lineup, journalist Tim Kawakami reports.

The Magic are seeking to sign a proficient offensive defender and may make a significant offer to acquire Thompson in the offseason, strengthening their squad with such a sharpshooter. Before the start of the current season, the Warriors aimed to extend Thompson's contract by offering him a two-year deal worth around $48 million. However, he declined, citing differences in expectations between him and the team.

Since 2011, he has been playing for Golden State, where he became a four-time NBA champion. This season, the basketball player has participated in 74 games, averaging 17.6 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 2.3 assists. After this season, he will become a free agent.

Klay Thompson was selected as the 11th overall pick in the 1st round of the 2011 NBA Draft by Golden State. In the 2014 season, together with his teammate and backcourt partner Stephen Curry, they made 484 three-pointers, setting a new league record. As a result, their duo earned the nickname "Splash Brothers."

Former basketball player Lindsay Harding may become the first female coach in the history of the NBA. Charlotte's management plans to hold talks with Harding in the near future.
