Stephen Curry understands the moves the Golden State Warriors made in the offseason to help them compete for another championship.
“We feel like our team makes a lot more sense this year,” Curry said, according to NBCS Warriors. “It’s just a matter of going out and playing, letting the season unfold and understand what we need to do to beat the best of the best in the West.
“There’s a lot of good teams, and we want to be one of them.”
The Warriors traded youngsters Jordan Poole, Ryan Rollins, and Patrick Baldwin Jr. to the Washington Wizards for veteran point guard Chris Paul. The franchise also signed big man Dario Saric and guard Cory Joseph to fill out the bench.
“Even when you win, you try to get better every year,” Curry said. “Some moves may seem drastic, some might be little fine tweaks, but I think every team is trying to take stock of what they have. And for us, it was about trying to make the pieces fit a little bit better, to try and give us more versatility on both sides of the ball.”
Draymond Green also re-upped on a four-year, $100-million contract in the offseason.
Golden State finished with a 44-38 regular-season record, ranking sixth in the Western Conference. They beat the upstart Sacramento Kings before losing to the Los Angeles Lakers in the second round. Golden State won the championship in 2022.
The Warriors hired Mike Dunleavy Jr. as general manager after Bob Myers stepped down in May.
