“I like our team and where it’s at,” Myers told NBA.com at Wednesday’s ESPY Awards. “I want to give the guys a chance to do it again. We kept most of it together, but we have to stay healthy. I didn’t think we’d make it last year, but we did. I watch like you do. We’ll see what happens.”
“It’s a good group. We’re lucky. It’ll be fun to see. We were really hunting last year. Now I guess we’re back to being the hunted, which I didn’t think we’d be. We’ll see. I think we can handle it.”
Any potential reunion between Durant and Steph Curry has always been speculative, but Myers’ comments are even more indication that the report was always just a rumor rather than anything to take seriously.
On paper, the Warriors have enough viable pieces to make a trade happen but I doubt it would meet the high asking price of the Nets — who made it known they want a king’s ransom for the future Hall of Famer.
Others, such as Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole, rose to the occasion for the Warriors this past season, especially in the playoffs, proving they could still get it done without the additional superstar.
