Stephen Curry, Dorell Wright Want to Play in China During Lockout

by July 15, 2011

According to Golden State Warriors teammates Stephen Curry and Dorell Wright, China is the new hotness during the NBA lockout. The Contra Costa Times reports: “China is looking promising,’ Curry said via text message. ‘There’s no deal yet on the table, but my agent is going to entertain offers and see what happens. If it works, I’ll go.’ Wright said China would be his first choice. He has an endorsement deal with Peak, a Chinese basketball shoe company. ‘I would definitely like to play in China,’ Wright said via text. ‘But I’m open to other options. I’m going to China for a week (in August), so I’ll definitely see how it is.’ Curry said his priority is rehabbing from offseason surgery on his right ankle and finishing up his degree at Davidson. He also is getting married at the end of this month. He expects to be 100 percent healthy and ready to play basketball by November. If the NBA is still shut down by the lockout, Curry said, he is more than willing to look elsewhere.”
