Yeah, they asked for my opinion ... I don't think you can give up Klay to make that happen.
Stephen Curry

On May 29, amid swirling rumors that the Warriors were reportedly contemplating trading Klay Thompson to Minnesota for power forward Kevin Love, Stephen Curry let it be known he didn't want Thompson to be dealt.

"I definitely want him to continue to be my backcourt mate and keep pushing," Curry said.

It sounds as if Curry's wishes will come true.

According to multiple national reports, the Timberwolves will trade Love to Cleveland in a package that will land them Andrew Wiggins. The reported deal can't become official until Aug. 23.

On Tuesday morning, Curry joined The Dan Patrick Show, and answered several questions regarding Thompson:

Patrick: "How often did you talk to Klay Thompson about the possibility that he could be traded for Kevin Love?"

Curry: "A few times, just to see where his head's at. He actually took it pretty well ... Obviously, our trade didn't go through and it didn't happen and they are keeping our core intact. I know he's pretty happy with how things turned out."

Patrick: "Well, did management consult you?"

Curry: "Yeah, they asked for my opinion ... It's just a matter of if you think that move would make you better as a team. I didn't have an answer for it cuz you'd be giving up a lot to get him. But, uh, you know, not my decision."

Patrick: "Would you have done it?"

Curry: "I don't think you can give up Klay to make that happen. We have such a good core together. You got David Lee, Andrew Bogut ... We were a great team last year. Put the same core together another year, we gotta get better, right? That's the mission. I gotta hopefully prove that message right this year."
