Trouble in Oakland! A source tells Golden Gate Sports that Stephen Curry reportedly regrets signing his $44 million dollar extension, and is looking for a trade in the offseason. Curry repeatedly told sources that it wasn’t his fault if the Warriors failed, and that he doesn’t want to stay here for an extra four years. He is looking to move on with his career.
Curry is the Warriors franchise player, and one of the up and coming point guards in the league. If he leaves in the off-season, the Warriors aren’t going to get a great PG of equal value. Curry could end up being one of the best shooters in NBA history, and I don’t think anybody else has the right to say this.
According to the source, he would rather go to a franchise that is capable of winning a championship, and although he’s thankful for the fans, he would much rather get a ring early in his career. It may seem a bit selfish of Curry, but this isn’t the only reason that Curry wants to leave Oakland.
After the game against Portland last Saturday, coach Mark Jackson and Curry had a spat in the locker room. Jackson complained that Curry was shooting too many three pointers and not working on passing the ball to other guys like Klay Thompson and Harrison Barnes. Curry said that he was going for Ray Allen’s record of three pointers in a season.
The only way that Curry could stay was if the Warriors made a championship run, but that’s very unlikely to happen.
