Calm down, Warriors fans. I know what you’re thinking and we’re not talking about free agency.
LeBron James has reportedly found another NBA star to join him in “Space Jam 2.”
Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson is reportedly “locked in” for a role in the upcoming movie, according to Jason McIntyre of Fox Sports Radio.
“I do believe an announcement will come out after the Finals that Klay Thompson is committed to ‘Space Jam 2.’ He will be in the movie,” McIntyre said Saturday on “The Jason McIntyre Show.”
There were several reports a few months ago that stated LeBron was having quite a bit of trouble getting any players to star alongside him in the movie and that sneaker contracts could impact casting due to Nike’s ties to the “Space Jam” franchise.
Well, that assumption was shot down as Klay Thompson currently has a shoe deal with Chinese-based brand Anta.
Thompson discussed his love of the original “Space Jam” at the All-Star Game in February.
“Favorite MJ story? Man, I don’t know. My favorite MJ story is probably just ‘Space Jam,'” he said. “I love that movie. That movie is timeless.”
Filming for “Space Jam 2” is set to begin this summer. Even more important is that Klay will be spending a lot of time around LeBron James as he gets set to enter free agency.
Klay to the Lakers? It’s a strong possibility.
