Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry is looking forward to playing with point guard Chris Paul during the 2023-24 NBA season, who was traded by the Washington Wizards to the Dubs for shooting guard Jordan Poole.

Curry told Anthony Slater of The Athletic that Paul can help the Warriors get back to the promised land next season. Golden State has won four rings and played in six NBA Finals in the Curry-Klay Thompson-Draymond Green era.

“The business is crazy,” Curry said about the Paul-Poole trade. “We all know that. If you asked us six months ago if this was something that could happen, the answer probably would’ve been no just based on where we were. Then you get to the summer and are trying to find ways to get better and put yourself in a position to chase another championship. Every team that CP has been on gets better. That’s the most consistent thing about him, and who he is and what he brings to the team. Everybody’s going to talk about the age. It’s on us to put that all together and figure out how all the pieces work.

“You hate losing JP. I know it’s not all the way official yet. So I don’t want to talk too much before it is. But that’s the tough part of the business, seeing a young guy come into his own (and then get traded). It’s a great opportunity for him. It’s just you get to know someone like that, build a friendship, build a bond. It’s tough to see him go. But, you know, we’re trying to win next year and CP can help us do that.”

Paul averaged 13.9 points, 4.3 rebounds and 8.9 assists this past season for the Phoenix Suns while shooting 44.0% from the field, 37.5% from beyond the arc and 83.1% from the free-throw line. The future Hall of Famer has never won a championship during his legendary career.

It’s going to be strange to see Paul play for the Warriors. In 2018, Paul’s fake laugh at Warriors head coach Steve Kerr went viral on social media. Most recently, Curry told Paul, “This ain’t 2014 no more” during a matchup against the Suns in March.
