Over the first three years of a Klay Thompson extension, the approximately $10M/year reduction in salary from the max could easily translate to about $80M/year in savings for the Warriors.
The Warriors would also be in the repeater tax by this time, and while they'll be raking in the cash when they move to their new arena, 80 million dollars is nothing to sneeze at. Of course, all this is speculative as Klay is under contract for the 2018-19 season and on the back burner as they make a push for another championship.
