Stephen Curry says a no-trade clause “wasn’t in the cards” while negotiating his five-year, $201 million contract with the Warriors.
In a story by The Athletic‘s Anthony Slater, Curry added, “It’d be nice to have one” but doesn’t have any regrets.

So, after the Warriors’ loss in Utah on Tuesday night, The Athletic posed two quick questions to Curry: Why didn’t he get a no-trade clause this summer (despite much greater leverage than Griffin had)? And does he now regret not doing so?
“Just a negotiation situation,” Curry said. “Obviously, it’d be nice to have one, but it wasn’t in the cards. For me, I don’t say I regret not getting one.”
Curry said the two sides “talked about it a little bit,” but ultimately agreed against adding a no-trade clause.
