Klay Thompson expects to remain with the Golden State Warriors next season.
The Warriors have engaged the Minnesota Timberwolves in Kevin Love trade talks, but have excluded Thompson from the talks.
"We got a good core. I feel we have one of the better backcourts in the league," Thompson said.
"I feel like we have a team that can do big things. Health is going to be huge, but I feel like we can make big strides this year.
"The fact that I haven't been traded yet makes me feel comfortable. That speaks for itself."
"Every year there is some rumor in play and teams are trying to make a power move," Stephen Curry said. "But they've made a decision, at least it seems like they have, that Klay is an investment they don't want to give up. That speaks volumes to what he has been able to do in his career and his potential. I'm happy that he's my backcourt mate."

The Cleveland Cavaliers' offer for Kevin Love is presently higher on the Minnesota Timberwolves' wish list than any other team's.
The Chicago Bulls are also interested in Love, while the Golden State Warriors remain involved. The Cavaliers have seemed most motivated to complete a trade, as the Warriors have held Klay Thompson out of talks and the Bulls initially pursued Carmelo Anthony in free agency.
The Cavaliers are offering Andrew Wiggins, though he now can't be traded before Aug. 23.
Wolves' owner Glen Taylor is now believed to prefer Wiggins over Thompson.
Love initially had the Warriors and Bulls atop his wish list, but the arrival of LeBron James has put the Cavaliers on equal footing.
