Asked by a boy wearing a Curry jersey if he wanted a trade for the Minnesota big man to happen, Curry brought up how difficult it would be to part with teammates Klay Thompson and David Lee, who are possible trade pieces. "I'm not in the position to make those decisions, and so it's not up to me as a player," Curry said at Stevenson School, where he worked with about 120 youth basketball players. "My job is to go out and play and have fun and do what I'm supposed to do on the court. "I love Klay. I love playing with him as well as David Lee. Those are my teammates, the guys that I love. We've fought so hard the last three years together growing, and it would be very, very difficult to see that end. As great as Kevin Love is, it would be very hard to see your teammates and your brothers leave at this time. So we'll see what happens, but it'd definitely be a tough situation." Oakland Tribune

"I've always made a point that Klay is definitely somebody I would love to play with," Curry said. "He's a guy that brings it every night on both ends of the floor and somebody that I've seen grow from Day 1, and so being his backcourt mate for the future, I think that's a good look for the Warriors.

The Warriors’ Andre Iguodala doesn’t believe teammate Klay Thompson should be traded as part of a deal for Minnesota’s Kevin Love. “That’s not going to happen,” Iguodala told Sirius XM on Thursday. “I want to clear that up right now. We should not trade Klay Thompson. “I tell Klay this every day. I text Klay and say, ‘Don’t worry. I’m your man. I’m going to make sure you get paid. I’m going to get you the max (contract). You’ll be taken care of. Don’t stress.’ Contra Costa Times

“Klay really loves it in the Bay, and this is his first time going through trade rumors, and I’ve been through it many times, especially being in Philly. But Klay is my main man. I love Klay to death. One of my favorite people in the world even though he doesn’t speak. But we’re going to get Klay paid this year. He’s going to be a Warrior for life. “If I’m any other team, I’d take Klay as well, so I don’t know. You’ve got to look at the pros out of it. I tell Klay this: ‘Listen, if they’re talking about trading you for Kevin Love, that means you’re getting Kevin Love money.’” Contra Costa Times

The Timberwolves clearly covet Thompson and are well aware of the financial implications of the Warriors holding onto him beyond next season. It's the driving force of their hope that Golden State will relent on this front, the idea that keeping him after his rookie contract expires next summer while somehow landing Love in the process means the Warriors' payroll would be somewhere between painful and untenable.
