Trayce Thompson has joined the Athletics and will reportedly live with his brother, Klay
On Thursday, the A's claimed
Trayce is the younger brother of Golden State Warriors All-Star guard Klay Thompson. Since Klay went to play college basketball at Washington State University in 2008, the two have never played in the same city.
A's manager Bob Melvin told MLB.com's Jane Lee that both Trayce and Klay are likely excited to be so close to each other. "I talked to [Trayce], and he's really excited," he said. "I know Klay a little bit, and I'm sure he's pretty happy about this, too."
In addition to all the warm and fuzziness of the sibling reunion, Klay will be able to cheer on his favorite team without any hesitation.
Conversely, as the Warriors prepare for another playoff run, look out for Trayce potentially supporting his older brother. After all, Oracle Arena and the Oakland Coliseum are right next door to each other.
At the very least, Trayce reportedly won't struggle to find a place to live -- Klay has him covered:
Klay Thompson said his brother Trayce, who was picked up by the A’s today, will live with him in Oakland. Got to think reality TV producers will be lining up for that one.— Connor Letourneau (@Con_Chron) April 5, 2018
That's what brothers are for.
