There are always rumors about big trades during every offseason of the NBA. Stephen Curry isn’t going anywhere according to Warriors owner Joe Locob.

Following the LA Lakers’ lackluster season performance and first-round elimination in the NBA Playoffs, many fans have called for a change. NBA insiders have also offered up their own solutions. One of those includes LeBron James taking a pay cut to make way for the team to sign a third star.

The Warriors’ head was asked by Tim Kawakami of The Athletic about Curry possibly bolting for LA. He doesn’t seem worried about that at all.

“Look, Steph Curry, if he really wanted to leave at the end of his contract, he’s a free agent, he’s earned the right, he can do it,” Lacob told Kawakami. “I said that with Kevin Durant. I’m still friends with Kevin Durant and I still really like him. And I will always love him for what he did for this franchise. By the way, he took less money when he was here. He really helped us. We were able to get a couple of other players. … Players don’t usually do that and he did that. So I have great respect and admiration for that for Kevin. And I would for Steph no matter what he does, too. He’s done a lot for us, we’ve done a lot for him. I would hope that we provide the environment for him that he wants to be at for the rest of his.

“I’m certainly not worried about the guy you mentioned recruiting him. I don’t think that’s going to happen.”

The Lakers might try for a full-court press on Curry, but that won’t get him out of Golden State. The Warriors seem confident that he isn’t going anywhere, let alone the Lake Show.
