The Golden State Warriors are having a quiet offseason, and superstar Stephen Curry has taken notice. Curry shared his opinions about the Warriors' aspirations in the offseason in an interview published on the "Brother From Another" podcast.

Steph Curry comments on lack of activity in the offseason

The Ben Simmons drama in Philadelphia 76ers led many to believe he would be an exciting addition to the Golden State Warriors. His skill set is similar to Draymond Green: both can bring down the ball, make plays, and defend 1-5 positions on the floor. One thing Green has that Ben does not have is outside shooting. Green learned to add a decent outside shooting in his offensive arsenal, something Simmons failed to improve on throughout the last couple of years. If superstar Stephen Curry were asked why the Simmons talk has not progressed, he reveals an interesting opinion.

"If you're not having those conversations, then you're not trying. Let's put it that way."

Understandably, Curry is frustrated over the lack of addition in the offseason. He is 33 years old, Klay Thompson and Green are both 31. The championship window of the Warriors core could be closing soon. There are about 2-3 years left, depending on the health of Curry and how Thompson bounces back from his injury. Adding pieces now would increase the Golden State's chances to go deeper in the playoffs since other playoff-contending teams have also improved their roster. 

Who is better for GSW: Bradley Beal or Ben Simmons?

Curry has not spoken directly about who he wants to recruit for the Warriors, but it is a common understanding that the management closely monitors Beal's situation in Washington. Beal is coming off another stellar season but ended without a memorable playoff appearance. Russell Westbrook went to the Lakers for Kyle Kuzma, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, and Montrezl Harrell. These are interesting additions, but does Beal have the patience to go through another rebuilding. He is at the stage of his career where he should be playing for contenders. Beal has done his part in Washington, and should he decide to chase a ring, the management should help facilitate a trade. 

Adding Beal to the Warriors' lineup would send a loud message to the rest of the league. His skill set may be a bit familiar with Thompson's, but Bradley is more athletic at this stage of their respective careers. Should the Warriors add a Thompson 2.0 or Green 2.0? In Simmons, Steve Kerr would get a younger version of Draymond Green. Ben could help with the point guard duties in the regular season, so Curry is fresh when the playoffs come. However, GSW seems a bit hesitant to get the Sixers star. 

Is Simmons worth letting go of Andrew Wiggins and James Wiseman? Wiggins has not been consistent but is slowly gaining confidence in the Warriors system, while Wiseman still offers many upsides and is still young with more room for further improvement.

The Warriors management should decide soon or else lose the best chance of Steph, Klay, and Draymond to win another title.
