Stephen Curry Says Playing For The Hornets Is On ‘His Radar’

    Before the 2013-14 NBA season, Stephen Curry re-signed with the Warriors on a 4-year, $44 million contract. Simply put, the Warriors got a major steal. Curry overcame injuries and went onto become one of the biggest stars of the NBA’s modern-era. During Steph’s rise to greatness, his next contract was always something people talked about.

    It’s crazy how time flies, because this coming summer Curry will become an unrestricted free agent. Though he is expected to sign a massive deal with the Warriors, in an interview with the Charlotte Observer, Curry doesn’t rule out signing with his hometown Hornets. The three-time All-Star went as far as to say that Buzz City is actually on his radar.

    Curry still owns a house in the Charlotte area and his parents live in the city. Father Dell is a former Hornets star who works for the team as a broadcaster, but he largely stays out of his children’s decision-making processes.

    I asked Steph point-blank if he would consider going to Charlotte in the summer of 2017.

    “I don’t know,” he said.

    He then went on to imply that at an unspecified point earlier in his career a “Steph in Charlotte” scenario might have been more possible, saying “obviously I had a strong tie to Charlotte and would have loved to play there. I’m very comfortable in that city. It’s hard to say exactly what the situation will be this summer.”

    “It’s on my radar,” he said, “but it’s not really on my mind as much day-to-day. I’m just trying to enjoy what this season is going to bring.”
