Stephen Curry said he will work on getting stronger in the offseason.
I'll work on getting stronger, continue to work on my body," Curry said about his offseason plans. "The more minutes you play and the more grind and physical play you endure through the course of a season, you have to re-charge and get your body right for the next season." He had to deal with ankle surgery in the offseason last year, so this year he can try to get better as a player rather than rehab. Curry will be off the board in the first round next year.

As with all pre-draft stories involving prospects' stock, take this one with a grain of salt. While the athleticism shown at the combine Friday is a good thing, it's not exactly surprising that Hardaway, Jr., the son of a former NBA All-Star, would know how to behave in a meeting. Hardaway, Jr. is likely to be picked at the end of the first round and could slide to the second.
Hawks coach Larry Drew says he will interview for the Bucks' head-coaching vacancy on Monday.
It might seem strange for a coach under contract to be interviewing elsewhere, but Drew told Hawks beat writer Chris Vivlamore that he and GM Danny Ferry agreed to allow Drew to interview elsewhere. Drew said he won't rule out returning to coach the Hawks but said he's "moved on from the situation" in Atlanta. Meanwhile, Ferry has already interviewed at least three candidates to replace Drew and there was a report the number is actually bigger than that. It seems only a matter of time until Drew is no longer officially employed by Atlanta.
