NBA Rumors: Steve Blake would like to stay with Golden State Warriors

Veteran point guard Steve Blake was very happy to play for the Los Angeles Lakers and had even earned the respect of future Hall-of-Fame guard Kobe Bryant.

However, with Bryant out because of his knee injury and the Lakers going through a very poor season, they dealt Blake to the Golden State Warriors. The Warriors were looking for a player who can back up Stephen Curry and even play alongside him. Blake can do just that.

Blake will become a free agent next season and the biggest thing on his mind is winning, which is why he is open to potentially re-signing with the Warriors.

“I can’t lie,” Blake told Diamond Leung of the Contra Costa Times Friday. “I wonder where I’ll be next year. If I had the opportunity to be here, I would love it.

“I already knew from the outside that they were a special team. I didn’t realize what a great group of guys it was and how nice it is to play for Coach (Mark) Jackson. Those are all things that I’ll be looking for, for a place I’d like to finish off my career at.”

Blake is averaging 8.9 points, 6.9 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game this season.
