It appears that if the Los Angeles Lakers manage to acquire Anthony Davis via trade that he will attract some more elite talent around the NBA. In fact, the talent will be coming from the same state. 11
According to Adrian Wojnarowski on SportsCenter late Monday night, Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson would be interested in signing with the Lakers this summer if Davis becomes a Laker. This info from Wojnarowski was shared by Ben Rosales of SB Nation.
According to Woj on SportsCenter right now, Klay would be really interested in the Lakers if LA deals for AD and open up a close-to-max slot in FA. And this is also presuming that GS doesn't offer Klay the full max.

As Rosales mentions, this is all under the assumption that Golden State doesn’t offer Thompson a max contract this upcoming offseason. If that happens, he may very well stay in Golden State. But if they don’t, then we could be seeing a new super team forming in Los Angeles.
