As if the Western Conference couldn't get any more interesting, Carmelo Anthony will reportedly be traded to Oklahoma City on Monday.
With the Warriors engulfed in a war of words with President Trump over a potential visit to the White House, the media didn't have the chance to ask any of the players for their thoughts on the Anthony trade.
But afterwards, Stephen Curry and Draymond Green finally got to think about it and provided their feelings on the trade to The Undefeated.
"I don’t even know about this trade. I just heard about this trade 10 seconds ago. So, they got [Enes] Kanter and … I guess I am happy [for Anthony] because I know he wanted to get out and be in a situation where he felt like what he was doing on the court was actually productive," Curry told Marc Spears.
And the stacked Western Confernece?
“It’s going to be wild to see that trio of guys together. It’s just crazy how the West is getting stronger and stronger. It should be another tough matchup when we play them," Curry said.
While analysts and basketball fans everywhere are excited to see Anthony play with MVP Russell Westbrook and All-Star Paul George, Curry is reserve judgment until he sees the trio on the court together.
“It’s all hard to tell, because it’s all new looks. We don’t know what style [the Thunder] are going to play and how they are going to balance their attack. It will all make itself known as we go through the season," Curry said.
As for Green, he's thrilled for his Team USA teammate.
“I’m happy for him. It doesn’t change my views to who we are as a team. But I’m happy for him, definitely. I don’t hate OKC. They hate me. I don’t hate them. I don’t care. You’re adding a guy who can give you 20 [points] a night. It is definitely going to make you better. I think it definitely helps them," Green said.
The first chance Curry and the Warriors get to see Anthony and the Thunder in person is Nov. 22 in Oklahoma City.
