Stephen Curry Says China Looks 'Promising' If NBA Lockout Continues

Stephen Curry is currently working on finishing his degree at Davidson, but once that is complete, the Golden State Warriors point guard is considering taking his talents to China.

Curry averaged 18.6 points and 5.8 assists this past season in Oakland, but sent a text message to Bay Area scribe Marcus Thompson alerting him to a possible deal in China if the NBA lockout lasts into the NBA season.

"China is looking promising," Curry said via text message. "There's no deal yet on the table, but my agent is going to entertain offers and see what happens. If it works, I'll go."

China is an interesting destination as the league pays well and has hosted quite a few former NBA players including Steve Francis, Ricky Davis and Stephon Marbury last season, among others.

It doesn't hurt that China has grown to love its NBA basketball, either, as Curry's teammate Dorell Wright has a shoe-endorsement deal in the country with Peak -- making him entertain the option as well.

"I would definitely like to play in China," Wright said via text. "But I'm open to other options. I'm going to China for a week (in August), so I'll definitely see how it is."

Considering there are only so many Euroleague teams with budgets big enough to sign NBA players who aren't worried about said players leaving once the lockout ends, China could host quite a few high-level players this fall.
