Before the 2020-21 season, Curry told Anthony Slater of The Athletic that retiring with the Warriors is a "huge goal" of his.
"It's just understanding what the landscape is and what the situation is going into the future," Curry continued. "We want to be competitive, we want to be in a situation where we're competing for championships every single year. I want to be a part of it."
Curry is coming off of a career-best year in scoring with 32 points per game, in addition to 5.5 rebounds and 5.8 assists.
