Despite rampant rumors, the Warriors did not trade Klay Thompson this offseason.
Back in June, Thompson's father, Mychal, said that if his son was traded, "I'm going to have to talk him down off the ledge."
Then in August, a report surfaced that Klay was "pissed" that the Warriors were reportedly considering shipping him to Minnesota in a package to acquire Kevin Love.
At Warriors Media Day on Monday, Curry refuted that report.
“He jokes about it a lot,” Curry told a group of reporters. “I don’t know if he reads a lot, but people guess how he feels or his emotions, and he handles it really well.
"Somebody said he was pissed off about the trade rumors, and he showed me the link. He started laughing, like, ‘What are they talking about?’
“He knows the game and what could happen every offseason. He handles it well. I don’t think it affected him with Team USA, and I don’t think it will affect him going into our season.”
The Warriors have until Oct. 31 to agree on a contract extension with Thompson, or the 24-year old shooting guard will become a restricted free agent on July 1, 2015.
Last week, general manager Bob Myers reiterated his desire to keep Klay in Oakland.
"We value (Thompson) in the highest way, and we want to keep him on this team for a long time."
