Warriors coach Steve Kerr has not met face-to-face with David Lee yet after several meetings have been postponed, including the forward’s trip to Las Vegas. But the two have spoken several times and kept in touch via text message, with Kerr early on having talked to both Lee and Klay Thompson about their names surfacing in trade talks and rumors regarding Kevin Love. “They both get it,” Kerr said. “I told them, ‘I know you get it. It doesn’t make it any easier.’ But this is why you really get paid. I mean, you get paid made all this money, is it really for coming into a gym for two hours a day and shooting jump shots? We’ve been doing that for free our whole life, you know? You get paid because you can get traded, and you have to uproot your family. You can get hurt, you can get booed, and people on the message board are crushing you. That’s where you actually earn your money in this league, where it actually feels like work.” Contra Costa Times

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
