Kerr on bogus Klay rumor: ‘I think our guys know that stuff is almost always just BS’

Steve Kerr responded to a bogus Klay Thompson trade rumor with a healthy dose of sarcasm following the Golden State Warriors practice on Monday.

The buzz surrounding Thompson began earlier in the day when Brian Scalabrine —  a Boston Celtics analyst for CSN New England and one-time Dubs assistant —  told SiriusXM NBA Radio that Thompson “may be available.”

Scalabrine later clarified that his source was “just something” he’d read on the internet.

“Brian hasn’t called me yet,” Kerr joked when asked about the topic. “So, if Brian wants to call then I’ll get [general manager] Bob [Myers] on the phone and Bob and I can pick his brain and figure out what we should do.”

Kerr added that he felt no need to broach the issue with Thompson.

“Honestly, I didn’t even know about it until just now,” Kerr said. “I think our guys know that stuff is almost always just BS. So, if that became a story, yeah, I would probably talk to Klay. I didn’t know it was a story until just now. So, I’ll go home and get on the internet and I’ll decide whether to call Klay or not.”brian scalabrineGolden State WarriorsKlay ThompsonNBASteve Kerr
