The Warriors’ Klay Thompson is happy he wasn’t traded to Minnesota for forward Kevin Love, those close to the Warriors guard say as Love is reportedly being dealt to Cleveland. Backcourt mate Stephen Curry told The Dan Patrick Show on Tuesday he spoke with Thompson about the subject a few times during the process. “He actually took it pretty well.” Curry said of the trade talks. “Those rumors come around obviously every summer with free agency and teams trying to get better, and it’s going to be hard at some point in your career to avoid it, so he took it well. Obviously, our trade didn’t go through. It didn’t happen, and they’re keeping our core intact, so I know he’s pretty happy with how things turned out.” Contra Costa Times

Curry, who is one of 15 finalists to make the USA’s FIBA World Cup team, did tell The Doug Gottlieb Show on Wednesday that watching George get injured live in Las Vegas brought up “bad memories” of his own history with his surgically-repaired ankle. “I had some doubts when I left Vegas as to the risk that you take when you play USA Basketball, but at the end of the day, we made a commitment to play, and any time we play basketball, that’s a risk we take,” Curry said. “We’re committed. For now we’re going go out there and win the gold for Paul and do our thing over in Spain, but I haven’t really thought about two years from now because I guess everybody has to make a decision based on where they are when that time comes.” Contra Costa Times

The finalists include three Olympic gold medalists from 2012 - Anthony Davis (New Orleans Pelicans), Kevin Durant (Oklahoma City Thunder) and James Harden (Houston Rockets); three 2010 World Championship gold medalists – Stephen Curry (Golden State Warriors); Durant and Derrick Rose (Chicago Bulls); and the addition of Mason Plumlee (Brooklyn Nets) to the 2014-16 USA National Team roster and to the list of finalists participating in Chicago. Plumlee began the Las Vegas training camp as a member of the 2014 USA Select Team. USA Basketball

Curry said he's spoken with teammates whose names have been included at one time or another in the Love trade talks, including Harrison Barnes, who is working this week with USA Basketball's Select Team, and Klay Thompson, who, like Curry, is among the 19 players vying for 12 roster spots on the team that will represent the U.S. at the FIBA World Cup in Spain. "Those talks probably will still be going on while we're playing here and even while we're overseas before training camp," Curry said. "But at this point, I expect the same team to be back. We were a great team last year. We took the Clippers to a Game 7 on the road in the last two minutes and weren't 100 percent, so hopefully we can be healthy and be a better team next year."

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.

Curry joined Andre Iguodala as players to voice their support for Thompson remaining with the Warriors. General manager Bob Myers on Thursday reiterated that any big trade this offseason is "unlikely." "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. "Obviously, I'm not the one making decisions, and there are a lot of different I guess ways you can think about it." Contra Costa Times

Curry and Jackson forged a close bond in the three years together at Golden State. The Warriors lost an opening-round series to the Clippers in seven games, and three days later Jackson was fired. The news took Curry by surprise. “You fight so hard every day for three years with a coach that has bought into every guy in the locker room, and he did a lot for me as a player and put me in positions to be successful,” Curry said. “So you see that era end, it’s difficult for sure. “A lot happened at once. I had to take a moment to let it sink in. Honestly it still kind of hasn’t because we haven’t been together as a team in the locker room.” Charlotte Observer
