Curry averaged 18.6 points and 5.8 assists this past season in Oakland, but sent a text message to Bay Area scribe Marcus Thompson alerting him to a possible deal in China if the NBA lockout lasts into the NBA season.
“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.”
It doesn’t hurt that China has grown to love its NBA basketball, either, as Curry’s teammate Dorell Wright has a shoe-endorsement deal in the country with Peak — making him entertain the option as well.
“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.”
Considering there are only so many Euroleague teams with budgets big enough to sign NBA players who aren’t worried about said players leaving once the lockout ends, China could host quite a few high-level players this fall.
