Stephen Curry was asked to respond to reporting that surfaced this week that the Golden State Warriors tried to acquire LeBron James from the Los Angeles Lakers ahead of the trade deadline.

"No, never surprised," Curry told reporters. "It's always a surprise when stuff like that gets out because I'm assuming that every team is making calls that if every fanbase or media group would know about it, it would normalize the conversations that happen in the front office, especially around the trade deadline when you're exploring around the league who's available and who's not.

"Obviously, a guy like Bron, you would probably call just to see. I don't know what the depths of the conversations were, but it was a nice little surprise this morning for sure."
