Andrew Bogut is joining the Golden State Warriors, and it seems like everyone involved is excited. And that certainly includes Klay Thompson.

The five-time All-Star was asked at Friday’s shootaround about welcoming back Bogut, who was traded to the Warriors during Thompson’s rookie season. The sharpshooter is clearly looking forward to it.

Here’s hoping we get to see a few of these:
