Stephen Curry

Stephen Curry said he got assurances from general manager Larry Riley and coach Mark Jackson that he’s staying with the Warriors. The point guard has been rumored as part of a trade package that would bring Chris Paul from New Orleans.

Question: Have you talked to anyone with the Warriors about the rumors?

Stephen Curry: “I’ve talked to Larry (Riley), and I’ve talked to Coach (Mark) Jackson. They told me that I’m safe and secure here with the Warriors. They want me here. Obviously, this is a business and there are things can happen where a GM has to make a decision in the best interest of the team. When you have a guy like, Chris Paul, who is a franchise-changer, it’s something you have to think about with anybody on your roster. I understand that, and I’m not going to be upset if they entertain it. It’s nice to be in the conversation with a guy like that. It’s something that is going to happen when you’re in this business, and you have to run with it.”
