Warriors’ Stephen Curry has been in touch with Davidson about finishing college degree
Golden State Warriors superstar point guard Stephen Curry has been in touch with Davidson about finishing his college degree, according to Kerith Burke of NBC Sports Bay Area.
Curry broke his hand on Oct. 30 and underwent his first surgery on Nov. 1. The Warriors’ floor general told reporters in November he “definitely” expects to return at some point this season:
I talked to Steph briefly at a game recently and he told me he’s bored, ha. While he’s out of his basketball routine, he’s had more time for family, charity events, and business interests.
He said he’s been trying to read more books. He finished Andre Iguodala’s book “Sixth Man.” He’s also been in touch with Davidson about what he’d need to do to finish his degree.
Before he got hurt, Stephen Curry was putting up 20.3 points, 5.0 rebounds and 6.5 assists per game while shooting 40.9 percent from the field, 24.3 percent from beyond the arc and a perfect 100 percent from the free-throw line.
Curry signed a five-year, $201 million deal with the Warriors back in the summer of 2017. He’s making $40.2 million this season.
By the time Curry is cleared to play, the Warriors will likely be way out of the playoff picture. However, Steph is a competitor and wants to be out there with his teammates if he can play.
It’s still unclear when Curry will play again this season for the Warriors. The franchise is clearly going to be cautious with Curry since he’s the best player on the team.
