Stephen Curry recently commented on reports that the Golden State Warriors explored the possibility of acquiring LeBron James before this year’s NBA trade deadline.

Curry expressed that he wasn’t surprised by the Warriors’ interest in James, noting that such inquiries are common in the NBA, especially around the trade deadline. He mentioned that it’s normal for teams to explore various options and check on the availability of players, including high-profile ones like James.

“No, never surprised,” Curry told reporters. “It’s always a surprise when stuff like that gets out because I’m assuming that every team is making calls that if every fanbase or media group would know about it, it would normalize the conversations that happen in the front office, especially around the trade deadline when you’re exploring around the league who’s available and who’s not.

“Obviously, a guy like Bron, you would probably call just to see. I don’t know what the depths of the conversations were, but it was a nice little surprise this morning for sure,” Curry explained.

According to ESPN reporters Adrian Wojnarowski and Ramona Shelburne, the Warriors did reach out to the Los Angeles Lakers about James. Still, they were ultimately rebuffed by both the team and James himself. With James holding a player option for the next season, the Warriors were likely investigating if the Lakers were considering moving James ahead of a potential offseason exit.

Curry, 35, and James, 39, both are in the latter stages of their careers and are focused on competing for championships. A collaboration between the two superstars would have posed a formidable challenge to opponents, given Curry’s exceptional shooting and James’s prowess in driving to the basket.
