Stephen Curry, Warriors discussing contract extension

Golden State Warriors star guard Stephen Curry has revealed that the talks regarding signing a contract extension with the only team he has ever known are ongoing. Curry, who will turn 33 years of age next March, was taken by the Warriors at No.

7 in the 2009 NBA draft and he has spent his entire career in Bay Area. Curry, who won back-to-back NBA MVP awards in 2015 and 2016, signed a five-year, $201 million supermax extension with the Warriors in 2017. "We have conversations," Curry said, per ESPN.

"Everything's on the table right now. Everything I've talked about about being a Warrior and what the future holds. Obviously [I'm] fully committed on what that is. And understanding I've got to do what's right for me and the team and having those conversations.

I feel blessed to be in that position where I can say that and truly believe that, so it's a matter of just letting things play out the way they should and that's kind of where we're at right now."

Curry hopes to retire as a Warrior

Curry has had a lot of success with the Warriors and he is hoping to achieve more big things with the team before he calls it a career.

Curry was the key in the Warriors' trip to five consecutive NBA Finals between 2015 and 2019. Curry missed the majority of last season after breaking his hand early on in the season. "That's a huge goal for sure," Curry said.

"It's an elite club of guys that you look at that have played with the same organization and been successful and achieved greatness in that respect. So that would be an awesome accomplishment. Something that I've obviously spoken publicly about and am very committed to.

But that also goes with there's a lot more to be accomplished on the court, and again I can't fast forward to what the end is going to be and not enjoy the moment, enjoy the challenges we have in front of us and what I have left to accomplish as a player so we'll see what happens.

"I won't be changing my number or doing anything like that trying to re-create my career. Let's just play basketball and continue to try and achieve greatness." Curry enters the new season feeling great and he is hoping to return to the playoffs this year.
