In the wake of a report from The Athletic's Marcus Thompson II that Klay Thompson is engaging with the Warriors in talks about a "team-friendly" contract extentsion, Greg Papa has shot that news down.

Here's what Papa had to say on the matter during the opening segment of "The Greg Papa Show" w/ Bonta Hill on Friday afternoon:

“I have reached out to the Warriors and they 100 percent deny that this is true and the agent also denies that it’s true," Papa said on 95.7 The Game. "And they took it so far as to say there’s no way in hell Klay Thompson would…do it in the middle of a playoff series, playoff run.”

Thompson is set to become a free agent at the end of next season.
