Stephen Curry: Warriors ‘an enticing place to play’ for free agents such as LeBron James

PEBBLE BEACH – The Warriors’ Stephen Curry might not necessarily want to see Klay Thompson and David Lee traded for Minnesota’s Kevin Love, but the star guard sees the team being involved in talk of adding a Love or LeBron James as a sign of progress.

“For me, I think it’s just the testament to just where our organization is,” Curry said Saturday at his basketball camp at Stevenson School. “We’re an enticing place to play, and I think free agents understand that and people around the league understand that we are about winning.

“We have a great fan base, the best fan base in the world. Oracle Arena is a great place to play, and we’re on the rise as an organization. So for us to be in the conversations with a Kevin Love or a LeBron or whoever, I mean that’s something we probably were shoved to the side on those kind of conversations. That’s a good feeling knowing that we’ve done a lot and have a lot more to do.”

Curry said he would let the situation with James play out rather than place a recruiting call to the two-time MVP who informed Miami on Monday he would opt out of his contract.

General manager Bob Myers has declined to comment on James while saying the Warriors were focused on adding players via free agency when they become available beginning the evening of June 30.

“I don’t think four years ago if LeBron was a free agent anybody would ask him, ‘What about the Warriors?’” Curry said. “So it’s kind of funny.”
