Analysis: The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because an official announcement has not been made. The sides had until the end of Friday to get a deal done or Thompson could have become a restricted free agent next summer, when the Warriors would've had an opportunity to match any offer sheet he signed with another team.
