Stephen Curry Has Had Thoughts About Playing For Hometown Hornets

Stephen Curry was asked if watching LeBron James returning to play for the Cleveland Cavaliers would lead him to consider playing for his hometown Charlotte Hornets.

"I've always had thoughts about playing at home, what it would be like," Curry said on The Doug Gottlieb Show. "My dad played there for 10 years, and people around the Greater Charlotte area in North Carolina have done a lot for my family growing up, so you always think about it.

"Right now I feel like I've got three years left on my deal, so this isn't going to be an issue for me for a while. I love the Bay Area and where we are as a team trying to win a championship, and that's what it's all about. Of course everybody dreams about or thinks about what it's going to be like to play at home. Obviously if that opportunity comes along it's a different discussion."

Curry is in the middle of a four-year contract with the Golden State Warriors.
