Warriors exercise contract option on Curry

The Associated Press

OAKLAND – The Golden State Warriors have exercised their third-year contract option on guard Stephen Curry for the 2011-12 campaign.

It’s all but a formality for the team and last season’s runner-up for NBA Rookie of the Year.

The 22-year-old Curry averaged 17.5 points, 5.9 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 1.90 steals in 80 games last season. He averaged 36.2 minutes and was a unanimous First Team All-Rookie pick.

Curry and the Warriors began training camp this week under new coach Keith Smart, who replaced Don Nelson.

The first two years of Curry’s contract as a first-round draft pick were guaranteed, while the third and fourth years are a team option. Curry was chosen with the seventh overall pick in the 2009 draft.
