GM Bob Myers reiterates Warriors' stance on signing Steph Curry long term

DANVILLE -- Everything the Warriors have said and done, as well as everything Stephen Curry has said, indicates there is no chance of a divorce, even though Curry becomes an unrestricted free agent at 12:01 a.m. Saturday morning.

Curry has pointed out numerous times that he plans to sign with the Warriors, implying that it would be pointless for other teams to pursue him on the open market.

And on Wednesday afternoon, Warriors president and general manager Bob Myers reiterated the team’s stance regarding the two-time MVP by expressing Curry would be a top priority.

“He’s got to be,” Myers said at Monte Vista High School, where he and Warriors forward Draymond Green was subjects of a news conference/pep rally in the wake of Myers being named Executive of the Year and Green being named Defensive Player of the Year.

Myers was careful not to slight other players the Warriors expect to re-sign, such as Kevin Durant, and those the team hopes to retain, notably Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston.

“Actually, we’ve got a lot of priorities,” Myers said. “But, certainly, touching all of them and making sure we do our job and make sure they know we want them is important,” Myers said. “But he knows how we feel. I think he’s happy. But he’s a huge priority.”

The Warriors are allowed to pay Curry about $200 million over the next five seasons, and CEO Joe Lacob has said he’s ready to do whatever it takes.

Klay Thompson is enjoying himself in China.

Video surfaced of the two-time champion dancing in what appears to be a club.

The Instagram account "officialwarriorsworld" posted a clip of the video with the caption: "Klay having the time of his life in China."

One of the comments came from none other than Steph Curry.

But the two-time MVP didn't use any words. He just used 14 "laughing-face" emojis.

Curry recently commented on a different Instagram post that suggested Vince Carter should play for the Warriors next season.

The NBA is fun.

A detailed look at Steph Curry's 2016-17 MVP votes

A detailed look at Steph Curry's 2016-17 MVP votes

Steph Curry won the MVP in 2015.

Last year, he became the first unanimous MVP in NBA history.

This year -- he finished in sixth place.

Curry did not receive a single first-place or second-place vote.

He did wind up with three third-place votes. They came from:

1) Lisa Shen Yang of Tencent
2) Richard Walker of Gaston Gazette
3) Royce Young of ESPN

He earned one fourth-place vote, from Kevin Ding of Bleacher Report.

Curry finished in sixth because he racked up 34 fifth-place votes.

Over the course of the season, it became clear that the Top 4 MVP candidates were Russell Westbrook, James Harden, Kawhi Leonard and LeBron James (they finished in that order).

In the end, Isaiah Thomas bested Curry for fifth-place by garnering four third-place votes, eight fourth-place votes and 37 fifth-place votes.

During the regular season, Curry averaged 25.3 points, 6.6 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 1.8 steals per game, while shooting just under 47 percent from the field and over 41 percent from deep.

In the playoffs, he registered 28.1 points, 6.7 assists, 6.2 rebounds and 2.0 steals, while shooting over 48 percent from the field and just under 42 percent from distance.

Kevin Durant -- who was named NBA Finals MVP -- ended up with just two fifth-place votes.
