The Monstars are reportedly coming for Klay Thompson's shooting stroke.

Jason McIntyre of Fox Sports Radio said Thompson is "locked in" for a role in Space Jam 2, which will begin filming this summer:

The film will star LeBron James but has yet to announce any NBA co-stars. In the 1996 original, Michael Jordan was joined by Larry Bird, Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing, Muggsy Bogues, Larry Johnson and Shawn Bradley in the main cast. A number of other NBA players also made cameo appearances.

Assuming the sequel follows a similar premise, the Monstars will steal the powers of the NBA players to reign supreme over the sport. In Thompson's case, they'd be taking one half of the greatest shooting backcourt in league history.

The Golden State Warriors will have to hope the Monstars don't get filming off to an early start, as they're facing a 3-1 deficit to the Toronto Raptors in the NBA Finals. They'll need a Monstar-level performance from Thompson to become the second team in league history to recover from such a deficit in the Finals.
