The Dallas Mavericks made the biggest free agency signing in team history on Monday as they inked Klay Thompson to a three-year, $50 million contract as part of a sign-and-trade that sent Josh Green to the Charlotte Hornets.

It was known that Dallas was trying to improve their shooting this offseason, and they happened to do so by adding one of the greatest shooters of all time in Thompson.

Thompson was someone Dallas had been linked to for months, and now he has the chance to chase his fifth NBA Championship with Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving by his side. While there is tons of excitement from Mavs fans about Thompson joining the squad, one report coming out of Golden State could hinder that excitement coming from the city of Dallas.

Klay Thompson was 'equally exhausting' as Draymond Green in Golden State

Joe Dumas of KRON4 News in the Bay Area was on 95.7 The Game talking about Thompson on Monday after he had signed with Dallas, and he dove into who Thompson was "behind the scenes" as a Warrior.

Dumas said Thompson was "equally exhausting" as Draymond Green "behind the scenes" and although it's not as noticeable as Green's antics such as stomping on someone or getting thrown out of games, Dumas says that it has been "uncomfortable" with Thompson.

Dumas dove into how Thompson would be slamming things down on the bench or "sulking" on the court during games, and then asked the questions of "How do you think it is in practice?" and "How do you think it is in the locker room?"

Green is known for sometimes being a distraction on the floor, and he even punched former teammate Jordan Poole during practice, and Thompson being compared to him in this way seems strange. Thompson is one of the most respected Warriors of all time, and although Green is a great player, his antics have hurt that team more than imaginable, unlike Thompson.

This report not coming out right after Thompson decided to go elsewhere is a little fishy, and this rumor doesn't seem to encompass the type of person Thompson is at all. He was loyal to Golden State for his entire career to this point, and the local media bashing him right after he left is questionable.

Every report during this time of year must be taken with a grain of salt, but if this report about Thompson being a problem "behind the scenes" is true, the Mavs could be in trouble.

They just got done dealing with someone who didn't fit in with Grant Williams, and the reports that came out about Williams were at a similar timing as Thompson's did. It was after Williams had already been traded to the Hornets, and you truly never know what is going on off the court in any of these situations.

Regardless of whether these reports about Thompson are true or not, the Mavs just landed one of the greatest shooters of all time to pair with Doncic and Irving. Thompson is joining the Mavs to have a chance to compete for a championship, and considering the chemistry of the current roster, I see Thompson fitting in just fine.

Dallas aced this move, and Mavs fans should be excited about the future with Thompson as a member of their core.

For all the latest on Klay Thompson and the Dallas Mavericks all offseason long, stay tuned.
