Warriors are Keeping Stephen Curry

by June 29, 2009

Don Nelson wants Curry to get familiar with his new surroundings: “Stephen Curry can get comfortable. Coach Don Nelson isn’t sending his newest high-scoring guard anywhere. Nelson firmly declared the Warriors won’t trade Curry. ‘He can unpack his bags and relax,’ Nelson said. ‘He can buy a house. We drafted him because we think he’s a terrific player that fits right into our program. He ain’t going anyplace.’ Many wondered whether Golden State drafted Curry at Phoenix’s behest for a subsequent trade. After all, point guard Monta Ellis is about the same size and plays much the same style of game. Ellis ‘should be happy that he’s got a sidekick that’s very good,’ Nelson said. ‘I think he’s going to be able to play right away.'”
