Whether this rumor is true or not, Curry has nothing left to prove after winning his first Finals MVP and any other awards and accolades would just be more icing on the cake. Not to mention Curry's team-first mindset and selfless attitude would make these claims seem even more ludicrous.
In terms of what a trade for Durant would do for the roster, the Warriors' young core would likely get sent to Brooklyn for a superstar who is still one of the best players in the NBA but isn't getting younger, turning 34 this upcoming season.
Bucher may be off the mark with his report but ESPN's Brian Windhorst did say said that Curry didn't directly answer a question on reuniting with Durant, he never rejected the idea.
“I think this says a lot about the Warriors organization that they would be coming off a championship and Steph Curry coming off a crowning moment in his career and he wouldn’t slam the door shut on this,” Windhorst said. “Steph Curry’s got the kind of clout where he can shut this down, but he’s not. Joe Lacob is not.”
It will ultimately take a lot for the Warriors to get KD back in San Francisco but where things stand right now, Durant may likely start the new season still in Brooklyn.
